The Cortland County Health Department has released data from 2022 regarding speeding related crashes within the county.
From October 2021 to September 2022, the county says speed was the contributing factor to 334 crashes in the county. The crashes led to 77 injuries and 2 fatalities.
“Speeding endangers not only the life of the speeder, but all of the people on the road with them. Speeding is not worth it.” The County said in a release.
Out of the 334 crashes, 68 of the crashes involved young drivers (16 to 20 years old) and 21 of the 334 crashes involved alcohol.
The Cortland County Health Department continues their work to reduce and prevent traffic related injuries and fatalities through the department’s community educational outreach. More information is available on their Traffic Safety Program, HERE.
