Black Box in Speeder's Car Helped Conviction

x-empt Re:Speed limiters == bad (864 comments)

These are two real examples where I broke the speed limit to avoid an accident this week. In each case, I judged that accelerating was less dangerous than braking sharply under the conditions at the time.

Ironically, this is what most women do when they actually cause accidents. Women tend to panic and over-react quite easily when behind the driver's seat. Instead of slowing down... women panic and floor the gas peddle! Although they generally avoid the accident or possible incident they are trying to... they usually end up causing a far worse one.
