3/4 of a second.At 55 mph you travel 60 feet in 3/4 of a second

23

Reaction distance?

The average driver has a reaction time of 3/4 of a second. This accounts for an additional 60 feet traveled at 55 mph.

24

Braking distance.

At 55 mph on dry pavement with good brakes, it can take a heavy vehicle about 170 feet to stop. (About 4 and 3/4 seconds.)

25

Total stopping distance.

At 55 mph it will take about 6 seconds to stop and your vehicle will travel about the distance of a football field (60 + 60 + 170 = 290 feet).

26

The effect of speed on stopping distance.

The faster you drive, the greater the impact or striking power of your vehicle. When you double your speed from 20 to 40 mph the impact is 4 times greater. The stopping distance is also 4 times longer. Triple the speed from 20 to 60 mph and the impact and stopping distance is 9 times greater. At 60 mph, your stopping distance is greater than that of a football field. Increase the speed to 80 mph and the impact and stopping distance is 16 times greater than at 20 mph. High speeds greatly increase the severity of crashes and stopping distances. By slowing down, you can reduce stopping distance.
