How Fast is Fast?

How fast is to fast? How about 66 feet per second? That is fast… Twin Tire knows how to keep your car in great shape and safe at 66 feet per second.

Picture yourself driving 500 miles at more than 200 miles an hour, under the most stressful conditions, never knowing what you might have to avoid in the next fraction of a second. That goes with the territory in the NASCAR racing circuit.

Compare this to your own driving. How much time would you need to deal with a road emergency? At 60 miles an hour, that’s 66 feet per second, you’ve already gone about 60 feet since you began reading this sentence.

Would that have given you enough time to stop in a panic situation? It depends not only upon your state of mind, eyesight and physical condition, says the Car Care Council, the condition of your brakes and your tires play a big part in instant response.

From the time you see the situation and process it in your mind, and then move your foot to the brake pedal and apply pressure to the pedal, precious time has elapsed.

Then, assuming your brakes will be responsive, the steering and tires can help avert the disaster.
