I'm not directing this at the OP who did all the right things, but this is another reminder that when you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are controlling 2 tons of mass that won't stop as soon as you think it will. Always be alert with your focus out the front windshield, with occasional and brief checks of your mirrors. Anticipate and drive defensively.

Also, speed limits are scientifically designed and should be followed.
