Grovetown, Georgia, Listed No. 17 for Speeding in United States


September 24, 2020

GROVETOWN, GA. – The city of Grovetown, Georgia, was listed No. 17 in a list ranking the top places for speeding in the United States with 16.9 percent reporting speeding infractions in Grovetown. The rankings were created by a company called Insurify, which looked at data entered by people seeking insurance quotes.*

Insurify also noted that Grovetown has a population of 14,109, and Georgia as a state had 266 speeding-related fatal car accidents in 2016. Grovetown ranked higher than Johnson City, Tennessee; Jacksonville, North Carolina; and Lincoln, Nebraska.

Speeding is a problem for almost every state in the U.S., as law enforcement agencies work to crack down on people traveling too fast. Speeding accounts for about 25 percent of all traffic accidents in the country. 

In a report from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, study authors said that more than 500,000 people surveyed admitted to driving 15 mph or more over the speed limit on a highway. In addition, almost 19 percent of those people said they exceeded highway speed limits by 15 mph or   more regularly. 

The top five cities for speeding, starting with No. 1, were Clinton, South Carolina; Greenwood, Indiana; Seaford, Delaware; Kenosha, Wisconsin; and Kennewick, Washington.
