Speeding Deaths Increase with Higher Limits

Speeding-related fatalities have increased with rising posted limits, according to a new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

In 2017, 37,133 people in the U.S. died in traffic accidents, but 1,934 of them would still be alive if speed limits had not changed since 1993. Over the past 25 years, the study attributes a total of close to 37,000 lost lives to rising speed limits across the nation.

For the new study, an IIHS researcher analyzed the effect of changes in the maximum posted speed limit in every state from 1993 to 2017.

The findings show that a 5 mph increase in the maximum speed limit was associated with an 8% increase in the fatality rate on interstates and freeways — the roads most directly affected by changes to the maximum speed limit — and a 3% increase on other roads.

In total, over the 25-year study period, there were 36,760 more deaths — there were 13,638 on interstates and freeways compared to 23,122 on other roads — than would have been expected if maximum speed limits hadn’t changed over that time.

Speed limits are set by the states and have been creeping up since the mid-1990s. Presently 41 states have maximum speed limits of 70 mph or higher. Six states have 80 mph, and Texas makes it legal to drive on select roads at up to 85 mph.

Speeding remains one the nation’s top roadway problems and is responsible for approximately 10,000 fatalities a year.

Stakeholders such as government agencies, non-profits, safety advocates, and automakers are taking steps to remedy the speeding crisis.

For example, the IIHS and the Governors Highway Safety Association will host a forum on April 15-16 to address various approaches to the problem. The National Transportation Safety Board recently unveiled its 2019-2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements and included implementing a strategy to reduce speed-related crashes among its top ten initiatives. Finally, Volvo Cars announced it will limit the top speed of its vehicles to 112 mph starting with the 2021 model year.

  9. To begin with, it is easy to share information across platforms. This is a big benefit to multiplayer games that have to sync to work. Moreover, it is also a great way for people to play from different mediums. Play from your PC at home, and then continue playing on your Switch as soon as you leave your house. Even miles apart, video games allow friends to play, compete, or even just hang out virtually. There are games you can play over Zoom — our list of the best Jackbox games will help there — but we wanted to focus this list less on party games and on games that are best experienced with a few pals. Hope this helps and please keep us informed Gta is a lot of fun but now with all of the dlc and bad servers I feel that gta is losing its touch. The storyline is quite complex and requires you to bring back the lives of all the three protagonists on a line by performing various heists. It is a fun GTA game that provides you with an open world environment to run around and have fun, or a well-written storyline to complete and feel that you accomplished something. In the time since its release, there have been countless mods implemented into GTA Online for PC. These mods range from the simple to the insane, but they mostly serve to make the experience more enjoyable. However, because of this, it would be hard to support cross-play between PC and other platforms. There would have to be modded and vanilla servers, and it’s unclear if alterations made to the PC version would even be available to console players. Seven years in with GTA Online, and cross-play is probably just too big of a headache for Rockstar Games to try now.
