In the worst-case scenario, a second reckless driving offense in Arkansas could result in up to a year in jail and a fine of $1,000 if you caused physical injury. While speeding may seem like a victimless crime, especially on low-traffic, rural roads, speed limits exist to keep you and other drivers on the road safe. And sometimes, there are victims.
From 2011 to 2021, there were 1,207 people in Arkansas who died in speeding-related car crashes. This number accounts for 1 in 5 traffic fatalities. Avoid fines, points, penalties, license suspensions, and imprisonment — not to mention property damage, injuries, and death — by adhering to the speed limits around you.
