Excessive Speed Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 12,000 Americans are killed each year in speed-related auto accidents. Speeding is a danger that most drivers face every day. Whether they are running late to work or in a hurry to get to an event, many drivers take dangerous risks and needlessly put other drivers in danger as well. Drivers who are exceeding the speed limit are putting themselves above the law and indicating that their schedules are more important than the safety of others.

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence and believe that excessive speed was a contributing factor, you deserve justice. Please contact the Iowa personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling (515) 705-0233 for a free case evaluation.

Iowa Speeding Laws

The state of Iowa has established speed limits for its roads and enforces speeding laws for the safety of its citizens. Speed limits are not just suggestions for proper driving; they are enforceable regulations that are put in place after careful research to help ensure safe driving conditions. Higher speeds greatly increase the potential for injury, bodily harm, and even loss of life in an accident. The following information from the NHTSA demonstrates that fact:

  • The probability of a serious injury caused by an accident double with every 10 miles per hour over 50 mph
  • The effectiveness of car safety features is reduced at higher speeds
  • Speed can contribute to a driver losing control of his or her vehicle
  • Speed can prevent a driver from being able to avoid an accident
