Fatal Speeding-Related Accident Statistics

Head-on collisions are probably one of the most fatal types of car accidents. During a head-on collision, the force of the collision is much stronger than other types of car accidents. Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways. In this case, the head-on collision was triggered by street racing.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly ten thousand victims were killed across the United States in 2018 in auto accidents caused by speeding. In 2017, speeding was a factor in 26 percent of all traffic fatalities. This statistic means that more than one out of every four car accident victims was killed because of speeding. But why is speeding so deadly? The answer is simple physics.

High-speed racing on the road is probably one of the most dangerous and reckless things drivers can do, especially if they’re not professional racecar drivers. They could potentially injure others, and it can also lead to fatal consequences.
