A new method in Tennessee to keep drivers from speeding is the instillation of cameras on all roadways. Speeding is one of the top contributing factors to car accidents in the United States and these cameras automatically take pictures of cars that travel over the legal speed limit.As car accident lawyers, we know that nearly one-third of all car accidents have been attributed to speeding, whether on local roads or on highways. The faster a car driver speeds, the greater the risk of an auto accident as a result.
The personal injuries experienced by the human body in a collision increase exponentially as the speed increases. A loved one or you may suffer a number of tragic personal injuries as a result of speeding such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, whiplash or even wrongful death.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation was newly granted the authority to ticket motorists on interstate freeway work zones using a traffic enforcement camera. These cameras, called speed cameras, are used to detect and identify drivers traveling over the legal speed limit through the use of radar.
As car accident lawyers, we wish that more people could understand how speeding does not save them any time in getting some place and rather increases their chance of getting in a car accident that could injure themselves or someone they love. We strongly suggest that all car drivers consider the consequences before making a regrettable decision to speed and invest in the best car insurance policy possible for your vehicle.
Is speeding in order to get to a destination early or on time worth the risk of being involved in a car accident? Is it not worth it to follow the speed limit when you will be more likely to get to your destination safely?
