High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers exceed the speed limit, they are increasing the risk of a serious collision. Speed limits are intended to make the roadways safer for everyone. Unfortunately, Mississippi drivers have a bad habit of speeding. Nearly 15% of fatal crashes reported in the state each year involve speeding motorists. In 2018, a total of 9,378 people were killed nationally in high-speed collisions.
