Starting in 2020, North Carolina motorists will be able to purchase Volvos that will not exceed a speed of 112 miles per hour.

Over the past several years, traffic fatalities have been on the rise in North Carolina and across the United States. In fact, according to the National Safety Council, car accident deaths rose approximately 13 percent between 2014 and 2016.

They often – and understandably -- feel vulnerable and even helpless in the wake of an accident or injury that would have been entirely preventable had another person simply acted with due care.
