Time travel on the way to work

Years ago I had a police officer make a comment to me about one reason why a person would risk death or injury to themselves and others by speeding. He said they try to "use their vehicle as a time machine," racing to their destination and try to be less late.

So here's a question to provoke a little thought: If you use your car as a time travel device, are you going backward or forward in time? I asked this around and not everyone answers the same.
