NTSB Study Identifies Opportunities to Reduce Speeding Deaths

The board considers speeding an “underappreciated problem.”

According to a news release from the NTSB, speeding is involved in about 10,000 highway fatalities each year. Although roughly the same amount of people died from speeding in the United States from 2005 to 2014 as they did in alcohol-related crashes, speeding gets much less attention, the NTSB says.

“Substantial reductions in highway crashes cannot be achieved without a renewed emphasis on the impact of speeding,” said NTSB Director of Research and Engineering Jim Ritter.  “Lowering speeding-related highway deaths requires more effective use of countermeasures to prevent these crashes.”

Compared to other risky behaviors, speeding has fewer stigmas, which leads to less public awareness. ON July 25, the NTSB will discuss a new safety study on speeding and provide countermeasures that are currently underused yet proven.
