High-Speed Accidents in Nevada

You put yourself and everyone else on the road in danger when you drive too fast. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that between 2020 and 2021, the number of fatalities associated with speeding rose by about 8 percent. In 2021, 12,330 persons lost their lives in high-speed collisions around the country. This amount accounted for almost 29 percent of all road deaths that year. Not only did the number of fatal collisions rise, but so did the number of injuries sustained in high-speed collisions.

There is only so much that can be done to avert a catastrophic vehicle collision. A driver runs the danger of causing a serious collision when they are distracted by things like checking their phone or conversing with another passenger. In the time it takes to send one text, you could walk the length of a football field. This demonstrates how risky it is to divert your attention from the road. Sadly, far too many Nevadan drivers regularly participate in these kinds of careless driving practices.
