Lesson Background HTML
The Governors Highway Safety Association, a nonprofit organization composed of the states' highway safety offices, recently released a report summarizing the impact of excessive vehicle speed on traffic fatalities. Based primarily upon data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Fatality Analysis Reporting System and from information collected from individual states, the document reviews the policy, programmatic, and cultural trends related to speeding. It further offers suggestions on ways federal and local government agencies may meet the challenge of excessive speed, emphasizing the utility of modern, data-driven solutions and highlighting the advantages posed by using relatively new technologies such as Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) devices.
