Speeders is an American traffic crime reality television program that was broadcast on truTV. The program debuted in the mid-2007, and aired through 2009.


Unlike the more action-packed and felony-oriented show COPS, this program consists of clips of individuals being pulled over for minor offenses, most commonly speeding, as well as other things such as seat belt and other equipment violations, and is more comedy-oriented. The entertainment is derived from the interaction between the offender and the police officers. More specifically, the excuses that offenders give for why they allegedly committed the violation. To wrap up most episodes, a "Classic Clip" is shown.

International broadcast

In the United Kingdom, it was shown on Dave. In Latin America, it aired on truTV Latin America. It aired on Action in Canada. In Spain the program was broadcast on Energy, and in Finland on Jim.
