High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding can greatly increase the risk of a serious car accident. Each year, thousands of people across the country are killed in high-speed crashes, with a total of 9,378 people dying in 2018 alone. Mississippi drivers are notorious speeders, and high-speed crashes are involved in roughly 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities each year. When drivers speed, they are less equipped to properly handle their vehicles and avoid collisions.
