The National Safety Council reports that 1 in 4 accidents involves a speeding vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that accidents involving speeding cost society more than $75,000/minute—and around $40 billion worldwide.
The numbers seem astronomical, but even more concerning is the severity of the injuries involved in a high-speed motor vehicle accident. Speeds above 30 mph can significantly increase the risk of pedestrian fatality. As speeding accidents result in around 13,000 fatalities every year, it is clear that this is no small issue. When drivers neglect to pay attention to marked speed limits or adjust their speed to weather conditions, it can lead to life-long injuries or fatalities for accident victims.
