The article, studies show higher speed limits do not increase accidents , claims that increased speeding does not increase your chance of falling into an accident.

However, another article Speed and accident risk articulate the exact opposite:

A higher speed increases the likelihood of an accident.

Note that I'm asking whether higher speeds increase the risk of getting an accident, not, does going above the speed limit increase risk.

    Of course it does! Why would anyone be skeptical of that? Give me one reason. – George Chalhoub May 28 '15 at 19:55

    These are different notions; a speed trap is a road with a limit set significantly lower than its safe driving speed, for the purpose of spurring drivers to go over said limit and get a ticket. This isn't the case elsewhere. – user311362 May 28 '15 at 22:43
