Speeding-Related Crashes in Florida
Speed can be a critical factor in serious crashes in Florida. Even following the speed limit in unfavorable circumstances, like during inclement weather, when a road is being repaired, or in a badly lit region late at night, could be extremely dangerous. Unsafe speeds endanger not only the at-fault driver but others on the road as well. In 2019, speeding was a contributing factor in 26% of all road fatalities in the United States.
