### How many seconds will it take for a car to stop if it is traveling at a speed of 40 miles per hour?

Stopping distances are measured in feet not in seconds. At 40
mph you're traveling 58.7 feet per second. The average driver
reaction time is about 3/4 second which equates to 44 feet. After
applying the brakes it will take approximately 82 feet to stop the
vehicle. The total stopping distance for a car traveling 40 mph
will be 126 feet when you include reaction time and actual stopping
distance of the vehicle. If you divide 126' x 58.7' which is the
distance traveled per second you get 2.14 seconds. This is assuming
you're paying attention and have average reaction time while
driving.

###### Asked in Rules of the Road

### At 55 mph a vehicle will need at least how many feet to stop?

Any regular passenger vehicle traveling at a speed of 20 mph
should stop within a distance of 25 feet, once the brake is
applied. At 35 mph, the distance will be approximately 106 feet. At
55 mph, it will be approximately 228 feet. An increase speed will
always result in longer stopping distances. In addition, factors
such as road and weather conditions and traffic density also affect
the vehicle's stopping distance.

###### Asked in Distances and Travel Times, Physics, Safe Driving Techniques

### If your traveling at 65 mph how many feet will it take your vehicle to come to a safe stop?

Without additional data this cannot be accurately answered:
road condition
break condition
ABS equipped or not
tire condition
how hard you are pressing break pedal
Weight of vehicle
etc.
You can assume with any vehicle it will take a minimum of 345
feet. That figure includes reaction time of 202 feet and braking
distance of 143 feet.
