A Muslim should not cause any form of inconvenience to others. One should ensure that he does not drive in a way that causes anxiety to others and could endanger his life and the lives of others. Accordingly, one should obey the traffic rules for the safety of all road users.
To be reckless and drive at high speed will endanger one’s life or the life of other innocent people. This is not permissible as it could have serious consequences if someone is injured or loses his/her life.
However, if one dies in an accident due to driving beyond the speed limit, generally this will not be considered as suicide.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
