The Kearney Police Department
will join law enforcement agencies across the nation July 20th through August 14th , 2022 in raising awareness of the dangers of speeding and reminding citizens to obey speed limits . In 2020 , more than one quarter of all crash fatalities were speeding - related , and there was a dramatic increase ( 17% ) in speeding - related crash fatalities from 2019 - 2020 .
In 2020 , there were 11 , 258 people killed in speeding - related crashes , accounting for 29% of all fatal crashes in the United States . Speeding reduces a driver’s ability to steer safely around another vehicle , a hazardous object , or an unexpected curve . A speeding driver also affects stopping distances; as speed increases , so do the odds of a vehicle crash . Even the safest cars with the newest technologies are limited in how much they can help reduce the odds of a crash .
“We are asking our community to please slow down and obey the posted signs . Our goal is to save lives , and we’re putting all drivers on alert — the posted speed limit is the law . No excuses . ” – Chief Bryan D Waugh .
Kearney Police Department’s participation in this campaign is funded through a grant from the Nebraska Department of Highway Safety .
