Speeding increasing in Virginia during stay-at-home order
ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – Roanoke County police are urging people to slow down. “We do see an increased number in speed complaints in neighborhoods, just more people being at home," said Sgt. Northam’s stay-at-home order went into effect in March but the number of fatal and non-fatal speed-related crashes increased compared to 2019. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, there has been a “severe spike” in speeding nationwide as a result of so many people staying at home. The DMV campaign is also an opportunity to remind people about something that can be just as important as their speed.
