Adrenaline, it’s that feeling you might get from a roller coaster or when you put the pedal to the metal in your own vehicle. Whether it’s ‘the rush’ that motivates you or if you did not leave home soon enough and are feeling rushed, here are some things to consider before you treat the road like a speedway.
For your safety and the safety of everyone sharing the road, don’t speed.
We’re wrapping up “Speeding Awareness Week” with this message. For the last week, the Iowa and Nebraska Department of Transportation, the City of Omaha, and more than 20 agencies and organizations have joined their voices together in a public education campaign to emphasize that adhering to posted speed limits is critical for driver, passenger, pedestrian, and cyclist safety.
So far in 2022, there have been 13 deaths in traffic crashes. That’s an increase of three since last Friday. To see statistics published daily by the Office of Driver Services, go to the daily fatality report at https://www.iowadot.gov/mvd/stats/daily.pdf
