High-Speed Collisions in Nevada

There are many common factors involved in catastrophic auto accidents. Speeding is one of the most commonly reported reckless behaviors on Nevada roadways. Statistics show that speed played a role in nearly 29 percent of fatal auto accidents nationwide in 2021. Tens of thousands of people are killed by speeding motorists each year, with an estimated 33 speeding-related deaths occurring every day. Speeding reduces your ability to control a vehicle, increases the distance needed to come to a full stop, and decreases reaction time behind the wheel. This is a deadly combination that can greatly increase the risk of a car accident while also magnifying the severity of any resulting injuries. Drivers who willingly exceed the speed limit or drive too fast for roadway conditions should be held responsible in the event of a car accident.
