Default California Study Exposes Myth Of Lockdown Superspeeding

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/69/6925.asp

University of California traffic data show crashes down during virus lockdown. Motorist speeds remain the same.

""We estimate that since the order went into effect, collisions and especially injury and fatality collisions have been reduced by half, from [roughly] 1000 crashes and 400 injury/fatal crashes per day to 500 and 200 per day, respectively," the report explained.

Further validating the findings, the study found an equal reduction in the number of traffic-related hospital admissions in the Sacramento area. This included a 50 percent reduction in traumatic injuries for pedestrians and bicyclists."

...

"Contrary to the anecdotal claims about "superspeeding" during the pandemic, the report found no major increase in the number of vehicles recorded exceeding the posted speed limit by significant amounts. Using traffic detector data from eleven freeways spread around the state, the researchers concluded there were "small" changes in average traffic speeds of between 1 and 4 MPH. The fastest drivers are found in 99th percentile data, which refers to drivers traveling faster than 99 percent of the rest of traffic. Peak 99th percentile travel speeds increased 3 MPH on State Route 88 in Ione, but the rest of the state saw increases of no more than 1 or 2 MPH."

I can attest to superspeeding during this corona debacle. Im sure if I died they would list the cause of death as covid.
