Speeding is the leading cause of traffic fatalities and injuries in Mississippi. Speeding on the road is dangerous because it puts the motorist and others in danger. Speeding reduces a driver's ability to respond rapidly enough to prevent a collision in a risky scenario, and it kills hundreds of people every year.
