By the end of 2010, approximately 2.24 million people were injured in the United States due to motor vehicle traffic crashes – and out of those millions of accidents, 37 percent of all fatal auto collisions in North Carolina were directly attributed to speeding. What these staggering statistics indicate is that high speed accidents account for a very large majority of auto accidents across the United States.
While the average driver is aware that driving at greater speeds increase the inherent risk involved while operating a vehicle, a high speed accident is still amongst the leading problems plaguing drivers today. In 2010 alone, North Carolina tallied 1,319 total motor vehicle fatalities, which unfortunately, was an increase from the previous year.
