Some startling figures about highway crashes in the Badger State and how many are caused by people who are driving too fast.
Lieutenant Dave Pabst with the State Patrol says every 46 minutes in Wisconsin, someone is injured or killed in the state in a speed related traffic crash.
In addition, Pabst says speeding violations remain one of the most common traffic violations in the state, with over 200,000 tickets issued during 2009 along. He says those convictions cost drivers anywhere from $175 to $900 for the tickets, plus increased insurance expenses.
However, Pabst says the statistics show the main danger is serious injury or even death from going too fast while behind the wheel.
