Speeding In Pennsylvania
A recent survey found that the average Pennsylvania driver admits to going over 100 miles per hour (mph) three times in the past month. This is a concerning statistic, as speeding is a leading cause of car accidents. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding was a factor in 30% of all fatal car accidents in 2021.
Drivers Would Speed More
Almost 60% of drivers in the survey admitted they would speed more if speed cameras didn’t exist. 49% of the same drivers admitted negative feelings toward others who speed, even though they speed themselves. Most drivers are unaware of the penalties for speeding in Pennsylvania – perhaps because they haven’t been caught yet.
What should you do if you are injured in a car accident caused by a speeding driver?
Speeding contributes to the cause and severity of injuries. If you are injured in a car accident caused by a speeding driver, you should contact an attorney to discuss your legal options. An attorney can help you understand your rights and options and can represent you in negotiations with the other driver’s insurance company. If necessary, an attorney can file a lawsuit against the other driver to recover compensation for your injuries.
