Paying good drivers is the best way to curb speeding6/22/2012
Getting drivers to obey the speed limit really isn't that complicated, according to a new study from the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration. Just pay them for complying and dock them when lead foot sets in. Researchers who installed small GPS devices in cars and monitored their speed against the posted limit promised drivers $25 at the end of the week if they maintained a legal speed, but each time they went five to eight mph over, three cents were taken from that total. Nine mph or more over cost them six cents. NHTSA researcher Ian Reagan says the program virtually eliminated "egregious" violations of nine mph or more. Sounds like an easy way to get relief at the pump, too!
Would you obey the speed limit if money was involved?
