Speeding drivers are commonly involved in catastrophic and deadly crashes. Around 10,000 people nationwide are killed by speeding drivers each year. Drivers who voluntarily speed should be held accountable for any resulting injuries and damages. In Nevada, speeding drivers are responsible for over 32 percent of traffic deaths.
