Because being closer to the beating of the heart, it has more pressure behind it. Arterial blood is "outboud". Venous blood is "inbound".

ANS2:Arterial bleeding is difficult to control because the pulsing pressure, delivered directly from the heart, makes clot formation less effective for staunching the flow than it would be for capillary or venous bleeding.
