There is no "safe harbor" for being below legal limit

With New Year's Eve coming up, many people in Georgia will likely want to celebrate with a few drinks. However, given some analyses about the effects of even low levels of alcohol on a person's driving ability, a person who is planning to drive home after the big party may want to think twice about taking that extra glass of champagne.

Patience will be needed on the roads this holiday season

Another spike in the number of people traveling on Georgia's roads will take place over the upcoming week or two as people across the country from all sorts of backgrounds and faiths prepare to get together with families and celebrate Christmas.

Georgia fares poorly when it comes to pedestrian deaths

To follow up on a previous post, while the number of traffic deaths across the country has declined overall, the number of pedestrian deaths remains high to the point of being an ongoing concern. With almost 6,000 pedestrians across the country dying on the roads in 2016, the numbers should alarm both public officials throughout the state of Georgia as well as for the average citizens of Rome and other towns in the northern part of this state.

Fatal motorcycle accidents in Georgia may be trending down

According to a recently released report, the number of fatalities due to motorcycle accidents in Georgia are down by about 26 percent from 2016 to 2017. In 2016, 170 motorcyclists in Georgia lost their lives in accidents. In 2017, preliminary indications are that only 126 motorcyclists lost their lives in accidents.
