Speed Enforcement

​​​For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In ​2019, speeding was a contributing factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities. Speed also affects your safety even when you are driving at the speed limit but too fast for road conditions, such as during bad weather, when a road is under repair, or in an area at night that isn't well lit. ​Speeding endangers not only the life of the speeder, but all of the people on the road around them, including law enforcement officers.

​It is a problem we all need to help solve. This is why the West Virginia Governor's Highway Safety Program will be launching a statewide speed enforcement mobilization during Summer 2022.
