My daughter’s sick, so she stayed home from church this morning with my wife. While driving, I found myself speeding. I generally speed 7-9 mph above the limit. When driving alone, I might go 11-13 mph above the limit. What’s the reason for the additional speeding?

Is it because I want to drive safer with others in the car? But shouldn’t I want to keep myself safe for their sake even when alone?

Or is it because I don’t want to be the cause of their deaths – but don’t mind so much when it’s just my own life at stake?
