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.

What to do and not to do after an accident

While no Georgia resident wakes up in the morning expecting to get in to a car crash, the average person will be involved in one or more motor vehicle accidents over the course of their driving careers. This is true even for careful drivers who, generally speaking, follow the traffic laws and are on the lookout for other drivers.

What if I get hurt in a hit-and-run accident?

One of the most frustrating types of motor vehicle accidents are so called hit-and-runs, in which the driver of one of the vehicles, oftentimes the driver who is responsible for the accident, takes off from the scene of the crash, leaving the accident victims to fend for themselves.
