High-Speed Crashes in South Carolina
Speeding is one of the top five factors that contribute to fatalities and serious injuries in collisions in the state, according to data from the Strategic Highway Safety Plan of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety. National statistics show that 30% of all traffic fatalities in the United States each year are caused by speeding. Driving too fast for the conditions on the road resulted in 9,378 fatalities nationwide in 2018. Drivers who break the law on the road ought to be held responsible for their actions.
When people who were not at fault for a serious accident in a car must deal with the consequences, it is tragic. This is particularly true given that a large number of them might have been avoided if motorists had simply been more cautious, if cars had been made safer, and if the roads had been maintained in good condition. Traffic laws and safety regulations help to ensure that those at fault are also held accountable, even though not every driver takes their duty to the road as seriously as they should.
