While no one wants to get a speeding ticket, the real risk of speeding is the threat it poses to the safety of everyone on the roads. Did you know that nearly one-third of all fatal car crashes involve drivers who exceeded posted speed limits?


Four Facts About Speeding

Exceeding posted speed limits accounts for nearly one-third of all fatal car crashes. Next time you are rushing to get somewhere and find yourself speeding, consider the following facts from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  1. Don't Let Low Traffic Fool You: Speeding-related fatalities are twice as likely to happen in rural areas as they are on urban streets. In fact, only 12 percent of speeding-related fatalities occur on Interstate highways.
  2. Ten Miles Per Hour Makes a Difference: The probability of death or a debilitating injury doubles for every additional 10 mph when a vehicle is traveling 50 mph or faster.
  3. Wear Your Seatbelt: One in three drivers killed in car accidents are not wearing safety restraints.
  4. Talk to Your Teen: The likelihood of fatality in a speeding-related crash is highest for divers in their teen years. Young men are particularly at risk. They have twice as many fatalities from speeding when compared to women.
