Hundreds Of Car Accidents Occur In Atlanta Each Day – Don’t Become A Statistic

December 22, 2017 | General Tips

Hundreds Of Car Accidents Occur In Atlanta Each Day - Don't Become A Statistic | FAST HELPGeorgia and the City of Atlanta provide some of the most scenic highways in the country. Despite the beautiful scenery that surrounds our communities, potential dangers and health hazards are present everywhere. Threats such as distracted and reckless drivers can instantly turn a relaxing cruise into an unforgettable nightmare. This winter, the Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys at FAST HELP are offering information that can help protect you from becoming an accident statistic.

Roadway Concerns

Construction seems to occur throughout Atlanta on a daily basis. Although we may expect this, it is amazing how many drivers speed through work zones traveling at speeds that well exceed the posted or legal limit. In fact, some construction zones see multiple lanes merge into one and drivers are still going between 55 to 75 miles per hour. This type of carelessness creates a dangerous environment for construction workers and police officers who are positioned near these zones.

Motorcyclists and Automobiles

Another particular threat that continually looms is motorcyclists and failing to signal when changing lanes or making a turn. In this case, either a driver collides into a motorcyclist when swerving into their lane, or the motorcyclist hits a vehicle when weaving in and out of traffic.

Driving Slow In The Left Lane

How many times have you been stuck behind a driver who is traveling far under the legal speed limit, blocking traffic? We have all been there and driving in the left lane while being unaware of how this affects traffic can lead to disastrous results. Such cases cause those behind the vehicle that’s blocking traffic to change lanes and potentially crash into oncoming cars that get lost in their blind spot. This is especially concerning when large semi-trucks or 18 wheelers are involved.

What Does This Mean?

Considering the vast potential threats that exist on our roadways, it’s important to be careful when driving and remain focused on your surrounding environment at all times. Follow the legal speed limit, use all of the appropriate signals, and be ready to react to the actions of other drivers. Most car accidents could have been prevented if more concern was exerted by those involved. It’s impossible to operate a vehicle too carefully and taking the time to follow the rules of the road is better than ending up in the emergency room or worse.
