A speeding driver puts everyone at risk, including themselves. Over 9,717 people were killed after being involved in high-speed car wrecks in 2017 alone. Speeding greatly increases the severity of injuries sustained in a crash.
Speeding is involved in over 26 percent of all fatal collisions in the United States. When speeding, drivers are less able to control their vehicles, and security devices become less effective. Victims of these crashes should be sure to protect their legal rights with the help of expert legal counsel.
