Speeding and Car Accidents
Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents on our nation’s roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that speeding is a factor in roughly 30% of all fatal car accidents, and a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has found that speeding nearly triples your odds of being involved in a car accident.
Speed limits have been established to ensure that all vehicles on a particular stretch of road travel at a comparable speed that is safe for the driving conditions in the area. When one driver exceeds this speed limit, it endangers all others on the road.
Speeding often results in serious injuries in the event of a car accident, including:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
