As pandemic lockdowns spread across the nation, so did the false notion that drivers are safe on the road. While many non-essential workers found themselves stuck at home for months, a new trend emerged on our streets and highways: drivers traveling at alarming speeds. That, coupled with the unexpected increase in distracted driving, has proven to be a fatal mix.  In early 2020, the nation saw a surge in deadly accidents.
