A new survey shows many Americans have a need for speed.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has half of drivers admit to speeding and nearly one in five say they believe traveling over the speed limit is not dangerous as long as you're a skilled driver. The survey also found men admitted to speeding more than women.

Experts say nearly a third of all traffic related deaths are due to speeding.
