Speeding Drivers Kill More People In Brooklyn Than Any Other Borough

The disturbing news that speeding drivers kill more people in Brooklyn than any other borough is partially explained by several statistics:

- 88% of Brooklyn drivers break the 30 mph speed limit

- Only 2,028 speeding citations were handed out in Brooklyn in 2011, but Transportation Alternatives clocked 2,232 speeding Brooklyn drivers in just 12 hours.

The carnage is incredible: In 2011, 79 people were killed in Kings County by automobiles, and more than 23,000 were injured. (That's 63 injuries a day just in Brooklyn!) The numbers appear to be even worse for 2012.
