Car Crash Stats
- Speeding – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) cites speeding as a top cause of car wrecks throughout the U.S. Speeding accidents can happen even when the speed limit is not exceeded if a driver goes too fast to be safe under current road and weather conditions. In fact, only 55 percent of speeding-related accidents involve a driver going over the speed limit.
- Drunk Driving – The CDC reports that 30 people die each day in the United States due to intoxicated driving.
- Aggressive Driving – The AAA Foundation of Traffic Safety reports that aggressive driving is a potential cause of up to 56 percent of fatal U.S. car wrecks. The NHTSA defines aggressive driving as: failing to yield, disregarding traffic control signs or signals, tailgating, illegal or unsafe passing and/or weaving in and out of lanes.
