High-Speed Collisions in New York

Queens, NY - Crash with Injuries at 71st St & Central AveOne of the critical factors that significantly contributes to the alarming rate of traffic-related fatalities and injuries is the pervasive issue of speeding on the roads. Speed limit violations are common on New York roads, which greatly increases the risk of a collision for a variety of reasons. The slower reaction time and greater stopping distance are two of the most significant, among many others. Speeding drivers were involved in 4,526 collisions in New York City last year, accounting for 4 percent of all crashes. In the city in 2022, 3,940 motor vehicle accidents were caused by careless driving. In all, 12,151 people died in high-speed crashes on American roads that year, accounting for approximately 29 percent of all traffic fatalities. This equates to more than 33 speed-related fatalities on average each day.
