The Dangers of Driving Too Slow

Driving slow may seem like a safe driving method, but it can increase hazards on the road. Below we have put together the most common dangers that come with driving too slowly.

Distracted Drivers

Driving too slowly can contribute to car accidents, especially with the high number of distracted drivers on our roads. Distracted drivers might fail to notice the speed of slow vehicles—increasing the changes and risk of being involved in a car accident.

New Drivers

New drivers are known for being overly cautious and driving too slow on high-speed roads. Paying attention to the MPH road limits and being alert to the speed of other vehicles can help drivers determine the safe speed level.


A common hazard that arises when driving slow is tailgating. When a driver notices that a vehicle is driving too slowly, they will maintain proximity to the vehicle. This can increase the chances of being involved in a car accident with multiple vehicles.
