Transportation Safety Topics - Speed Management

Speed is a factor in every motor vehicle collision; either the actual cause of the collision or severity of the collision. The high school physics formula is Mass (weight) x Velocity (speed) = Force.

Understanding this principle clearly illustrates why controlling and managing speed is so critically important.

They chose Gallagher because we actually addressed specific problems we would fix in their insurance program, rather than only talking about our capabilities.
