Alabamians need to pump the brakes after a national research firm says the state ranks third in the country in relation to speeding-related vehicle fatalities.

The study found that there are 6.52 speeding-related deaths per 100,000 residents in Alabama. In 2016, the state saw 317 such deaths.

Compounding the speeding issue is a major trooper shortage in Alabama. The state has 342 troopers on the road for the entire state.
