Excessive speed has always been a common cause of car accidents. This is particularly true when there are other challenging driving hazards such as steep mountain roads, construction zones and heavy truck traffic. Pennsylvania Route 115, with its many curves, has been the scene of a number of traffic fatalities as reported on our law firm's personal injury blog. In response to the recent car crash deaths on this road, the speed limit has been lowered to 45 miles per hour. Will the newly posted speed signs deter drivers who are trying to get where they are going faster? Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald LLP attorneys hope that lives will be spared, but the sad truth is that car accidents caused by speeding are a fact of life in our fast-paced society.
Route 115 is not the only hazardous Pennsylvania traffic way. Perhaps you were injured or your loved one was killed on Interstate 81, the Pennsylvania Turnpike or Route 80. All have seen large numbers of serious accidents, including crashes that resulted in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Drivers and pedestrians often clash in school zones when motorists ignore posted lower speed limits.
