Not as much a factor as many are led to believe.

First, one's chances of a fatal crash are relatively minor to begin with.

If, you are not drunk, not on the phone, not driving late at night, not under 25 or over 65, your chances of dying in a car are less than flying in an airliner.

I'm a non drinker, I don't text or phone while I drive, and I maintain my skills. I'll take my chances with the slightly higher velocity. (however, I generally don't go too fast either)
