The December 2021 Issue of Nevada’s Traffic Research and Education Newsletter (TREND) contains the following article about Nevada’s non-adjudicated speeding citations.
Speeding is a dangerous driving behavior associated with increased risk of serious injury and fatalities. Previously, our TREND 10.2 Newsletter analyzed crash and trauma outcomes for motor vehicle occupants involved in speed-related crashes and found that crashes on higher speed roads (70+ MPH vs. 55-65 MPH) resulted in worse patient injury severity, higher hospital charges, and longer hospital stays. This TREND in Focus analysis investigates the demographic information of Nevada speeding citations from 2018-2020 (N=576,407). For additional details we encourage you to explore the full newsletter at the following link: TREND 11.1, and the simplified visualization of this analysis in Infographic 5.1.
