I’m addicted to speeding, but the more I learn about math, the more I realize that speeding just doesn’t make sense. Watch this STEMbite to learn why speeding doesn’t really help all that much.

The inverse relationship curve shown at the end of the video is particularly important, since it illustrates that the relationship between time and speed results in diminishing returns the faster you travel.

So now, who’s ready to start a petition to change all speedometers to “hours per mile” instead of “miles per hour”?

Yeah… me neither.
