Speeding can result in a fine and points on your driver’s license. However, it can also cause serious car accidents and even death. Just ask the friends and family of a mother who was killed along with her two year old daughter because punks decided to race on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa.
ABC Action News recently ran a story on their investigation into the speeding ticket data throughout Tampa Bay in the first five months of 2018. The number one spot for speeding tickets, so far, in 2018 is Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa with 466 speeding citations issued since January. Since January 2018, there were also 300 crashes, 200 injuries and four people killed on Hillsborough Avenue. Bayshore Boulevard with 430 being issued from January to May (many coming after the fatal accident) is number 2.
The report added that Gandy Boulevard is the fourth most ticketed road in the Tampa Bay for speeders with more than 333 citations being issued so far in 2018. The other ticket hot spots we found in the Tampa Bay Metro Area since January include Dale Mabry, Bruce B Downs, and US 19.
The report breaks down where most speeding tickets are issued in different areas. Here are the numbers:
