Why speed matters with regard to auto accidents

Many people in the New Orleans area may think that driving faster than the speed limit is no big deal. It is easy to rationalize speeding in a number of different ways. For example, if it seems like everyone else is doing it, drivers may be encouraged to speed with the cars around them. In addition, some people speed because they are late and think that if they drive faster, they can make up time. But whatever the reason or rationale may be for any particular driver, speeding is a dangerous problem.

What does the yearly data show about motorcycle accidents?

People in the New Orleans area may be aware that 2015 was a relatively bad year for traffic fatalities across the country. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 35,000 people lost their lives in traffic crashes last year. This marked a significant 7.2 percent increase over the number of traffic fatalities from 2014. While the overall numbers were alarming, how did motorcycle accidents weigh in compared to prior years?
