High-Speed Collisions in Mississippi
Every year, thousands of people are killed in high-speed traffic accidents. Maintaining vehicle control becomes more difficult when a driver exceeds the posted speed limit. In 2018, 9,378 people died as a result of speeding. Each year, nearly a quarter of all traffic deaths in Mississippi are caused by speeding drivers. Almost always, a high-speed collision results in more serious injuries. Speeding has been linked to the deaths of roughly one-third of all motorists in the last two decades, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
