Fighting For The Rights Of Georgia’s Injured For Decades

Motor Vehicle Fatalities On The Rise Due To Distracted Drivers

| Jul 16, 2015 | Firm News

In Georgia, traffic fatalities are on the rise since the beginning of 2015, and we could see the first increase in nine years. Many of these fatalities are the result of distracted driving. DriveAlert ArriveAlive asks motorists to buckle up, stay off the phone/no texting, and drive alert. Visit www.dot.ga.gov/DS/SafetyOperation/DAAA. #ArriveAliveGA.

This is important for all drivers, whether operating a car, motorcycle or other vehicle. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable on the road as well. If you ride a motorcycle, I also encourage everyone to take a safety class. This doesn’t affect the behavior of distracted drivers necessarily, but does provide education and useable knowledge on how to avoid accidents caused by distracted drivers.

Be safe everyone, and always remember to look twice for motorcycles.
