Fast & Furious Movies Make People Drive Faster

According to a new Australian study, The Fast and the Furious movies might be causing people to drive like maniacs, as the rates of both speeding and extreme speeding increased following the releases of three Fast and Furious movies between 2012 and 2017.

Researchers found that after a movie would come out, speeds of those pulled over increased almost 20 percent, from an average of 16 miles per hour over the limit to 19 miles per hour.

And, rates of extreme speeding were even worse, with the number of people caught driving more than 40 miles per hour above the speed limit almost doubling. On top of all that, the study authors found that the extreme speeders were often busted within two miles of theaters.
