Annual Campaign Reminds North Carolina Drivers To Stop Speeding

Annual Campaign Reminds North Carolina Drivers To Stop Speeding

The Governor’s Highway Safety Program is raising awareness about the dangers of speeding with the ‘Speed A Little, Lose A Lot’ campaign. They say driving too fast is one of the main causes of deaths and injuries on our roads. Speeding-related deaths have increased by 17% in the last five years. Law enforcement is using extra patrols and driver checkpoints to reinforce the importance of not driving over the speed limit.

A crash on a road with a speed limit of 65 mph or higher is more than twice as likely to result in a fatality as a crash where the speed limit it 45 or 50 mph, and nearly five times as likely as a crash where the speed limit is below 40 mph.
