Speeding laws: Man vs. machine [infographic]

Korrena Bailie

It's official - many Americans have a lead foot. And while speeding along the highway may be thrilling, it's also deadly - in 2011, nearly one-third of all fatal traffic accidents involved a speeding driver, with over 10,000 people killed in speeding-related crashes. 

In a bid to reduce the number of traffic deaths, law enforcement is dealing a heavy hand against speeders, using advanced and sophisticated technology. And if a cop gives you a speeding ticket, you may be out of pocket twice - once for the cost of the ticket, and again if your car insurance rates go up. 

In the battle of man versus machine, there can only be one winner.
