Itasca, IL - The National Safety Council applauds the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for taking a comprehensive look at the lethal correlation between rising speed limits and increases in fatal motor vehicle crashes. Speeding has been a persistent roadway killer for decades. It is staggering to see that 37,000 people have died over the last 25 years as a result of states increasing their limits. These laws are ill-advised, and this report clearly shows us why.
Changing speed limits does not change physics: The faster you drive, the worse your crash outcome. We hope this report serves as a wake-up call to the states currently considering speed limit increases, and spurs states that have recently raised their limits to rethink those actions.
