As a Seattle car accident attorney, I know that many accidents occur as a direct result of speeding along the highways. Marked speed limits are put in place for the safety of all drivers on the road and when someone violates these speeding laws, they are putting lives at risk including their own. According to a Washington State Patrol Media Release, law officers are cracking down on speeders along the Tukwila area of I-5, in hopes of reducing speed related collisions. Because this area of I-5 is so heavily traveled, state patrol motorcycle troopers chose this spot to pull over speeders during a four day speed trap investigation. At the end of the four days, the troopers had stopped over 100 speeders for violations. It is the belief of the officers that reducing the speed of traffic violators will result in a decreased number of car accidents in these heavily populated areas of the highway. Speed related car accidents can result in serious injury or even death.
According to the National Safety Council, speeding is the third leading contributing factor to traffic crashes, contributing to over 13,000 fatalities each year. People may speed because they are in a hurry, not paying attention or don’t think they will get caught. Whatever the reasons, speeding is potentially very dangerous. Please take the time to slow down on the road.
