Today’s vehicles are more powerful than ever. Turbocharged engines are the norm for many auto manufacturers, and horsepower keeps increasing year after year. That means that while it’s easier than ever to merge into highway or interstate traffic, it’s also easier than ever to accidentally (or intentionally) violate the speed limit.

Law enforcement is well aware of this fact, and they’re cracking down on speeding drivers. The Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) launched a safety initiative called “Slow Down Tennessee” to help reduce the number of speeding drivers on the state’s roadways. As part of the initiative, troopers, police, and deputies will be looking for speeding drivers throughout the state.

Crash-related fatalities are up 23% compared to the same time in 2020, and 63 people had lost their lives in auto accidents through March 15, 2021. The director of the THSO says that law enforcement is noticing drivers speeding significantly above posted speed limits. They aren’t just exceeding them by 5 or even 10 mph, but rather they’re traveling up to 90 or even 95 mph in 70 mph zones.

Speeding increases the risk of a crash because it increases the length of time it takes to slow down or stop. It also makes it more likely that you’ll lose control of your vehicle, especially if you need to swerve or you make any sudden movements. And finally, speeding worsens the impact of crashes when they do happen, resulting in more serious injuries for drivers and their passengers.

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
