So What Exactly Is Overspeeding?

So What Exactly Is Overspeeding?

So, what is overspeeding? It seems a lot of people turn to confuse these two terms: speeding and overspeeding. These two words, has different meanings, and many people turn to use the latter to refer to the former, especially in Kenya and Africa.

Many people have also fallen a victim to the misuse of these two words before getting educated about the difference. Most at times, when people say overspeeding they mean to say driving above the speed limit as allowed by law, but that is not the right word to use. When one drives above the speed limit, we say the person is speeding not overspeeding.

Let’s look at their definitions; according to the American Heritage Dictionary of English Language, 4th edition, when a car or a motor vehicle is driving faster than is permitted by law, we say the car or motor vehicle is speeding. So, if the speed limit in a given area or road is say, 50km/h and a car is driving on the same route at 60km/h then the car is speeding not overspeeding.

On the other hand, overspeeding is a condition in which an engine is allowed to turn beyond its design limit.  This may have a lot of implications on the engine. Overspeeding in an engine can cause engine failure or may even reduce the life span of the engine. The speed of an engine is measured in revolutions per minute (RPM).

So, when do we say an engine is overspeeding? It can happen in the engines of cars, motor cycles and even aircrafts. Here are some examples:

  • In jet aircrafts, an overspeed will occur when the axial compressor exceeds its maximal operating rotational speed. This can lead to the mechanical failure of turbine blades, flameout and complete destruction of the engine.
  • In vehicles, overspeeding can be caused in an engine by turning to an inappropriate low gear or even unregulated engines will over speed if the power is applied with little or no load.

Overspeeding in engines can be prevented. Some engines are fitted with a regulator or governor to make it impossible for the engine to overspeed or make it less likely to.

How Speed Governors Can Help Increase the Lifespan of Your Car

Speed governors are very important in controlling and managing speed. With the help of speed governors drivers can be able to control their speed and reduce rate of road accidents that is hovering in the world. Over speeding has always been a worldwide concern.

The alarming rate at which road accidents takes life is really breathtaking. But it is amazing that most drivers do not take road safety very serious. Even though the government has made it mandatory for all private and commercial vehicles to install a speed governor, most drivers have been adamant to it.

Well, the following are the safety solutions of speed governors—how installing speed governors can help drivers to increase the lifespan of their car.

  1. It protects the engine

The engine is arguably the most important aspect of every car. A weak engine would result into the breakdown of car. That means measures to be taken in order to protect the car’s engine should be done. When a car drives at a top speed, it weakens the engine gradually.

This can continue over a period of time, until the engine finally breaks down. Speed governors control the speed limit of a car, so that the engine can be preserved.

  1. It protects the brake pads from quick wears

If you are going to increase the lifespan of your car, you must think about the brake pads. Worn out brake pads can expose you to road accidents. This would shorten the life span of your car. Speed governors control your speed limit, so that it makes it easy for the brakes system to work when stooping the car. This reduce the risk of road accidents.

Overspending is one the top causes of road accidents. While there are human-related ways to prevent road accidents, many people would simply be tempted to drive overboard and this would lead to road accidents. Speed governors control the speed limits of a car so that the car would not over speed. This tends to limit and reduce the rate of road accident as well as increase the lifespan of your car.

How Speed Governors Work to Limit a Car’s Speed

How Speed Governors Work to Limit a Car’s Speed

Over speeding has been one of the top causes of road accidents. In view of this, many countries have sanction private and commercial drivers to install speed governors for their vehicles. Vehicle manufactures also install speed governors in manufactured cars so that they can be able to pre-set the car’s speed limit.

What’s the function of speed governors?

To control and limit the speed range of a vehicle.

Since over speeding is what causes the fatal road accidents, if the problem of overspending has not been dealt with, it would not be possible to reduce the rate of road accidents. This is achieved through the incredible work of speed governors.

How Speed Governors Work

In general, speed governors have electronic sensors and these sensors work with the engine’s computer to be able to control the speed rate of vehicle. The electronic sensors collects data of the speed rate of a vehicle, and conveys that information to the engine’s computer.

Once the speed rate reaches the preset limit, the engine quickly restricts the free flow of air, fuel and even the combustion system so that the vehicle cannot spark and proceed. By communicating the speed rate to the engine’s computer system, the engine is able to help control the speed rate of the car.

The vehicle can move as fast as it can, but it would generally be unable to overstep its speed limit. In this way, the speed governor works with the car’s engine to control overspending. The vehicle’s speed limit can be preset at the time of installation to help control the speed rate of the vehicle.
