A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that drivers followed speed limits when offered financial incentives. The study focused on 50 people who drove cars equipped with GPS trackers designed to monitor speed. Drivers who did not exceed the speed limit received $25 each week, while drivers who went five or eight mph too fast were penalized three cents each time. The study found that “egregious speeding” of nine mph or more, which carried a penalty of six cents, “was just about eliminated.”
