Drunk driving is still a problem

Despite being as careful as possible, a cautious driver can still be injured by a negligent driver in a car accident. With smart phones and other devices, there have never been more distractions and dangers on the roads. Car accidents can occur for wide variety of reasons, but one cause continues to endanger drivers everywhere -- drunk driving.

Drunk drivers are a danger to Georgia residents

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia beats the national average for drunk driving accident fatalities. This dubious distinction is a good reminder to readers of this personal injury legal blog that drunk drivers are a threat to everyone who must share the roads with them and who must anticipate their negligent and often dangerous conduct. The many victims that are created in drunk driving accidents every year are reminded that they have legal rights and speaking with personal injury attorneys about their experience may guide them through the legal processes of recovering their accident-related damages.

When distractions are present, dangerous car accidents occur

On any given day, Georgia residents may face any number of driving conditions that will test their ability to stay safe on the road. It may be weather that throws rain, sleet or wind into the path of the driver's automobile. It could be traffic or other vehicles that require a driver to slow down, maneuver and keep safe while operating the car, truck or sport utility vehicle. Accidents between other cars, broken-down vehicles and a number of other road hazards can put challenges and delays in the path of a Bremen driver.

Drivers who travel on Georgia's roads and highways know just how unpredictable conditions can be. From day to day, the weather can change from sunny and clear to stormy and dark. Roads that were debris free may become speckled with hazards if accidents occur on them. Traffic can vary based on the time of day, day of the week, and a variety of other factors.

A hit-and-run car accident can pose challenges for victims

It is common practice after a vehicle accident to exchange information with the other drivers involved so that the parties may be in touch with each other and may contact their insurance companies to inquire into how their policies might reimburse them for their losses. However, in some car accidents, victims may find themselves alone after their crashes if the responsible drivers leave the scenes of the incidents. Hit-and-run accidents happen throughout Georgia, and this post will touch on some of the ways these types of accidents can pose difficulties for victims.

Truck driver arrested after fatal highway accident

All drivers are responsible for maintaining control over their vehicles when they take them out on Georgia roads and highways. That includes the drivers of large trucks, big rigs, delivery vans, and other commercial vehicles. Recently, a major incident occurred on a Georgia highway that was caused by the dangerous conduct of a truck driver.

Three behaviors that increase the risk of a child auto fatality

The Southern way of life is a comfortable one that can entail casual evening strolls and lounging on the front porch with a tall glass of sweet tea. Taking care of family is important, and children are cherished. While we take care to keep our children safe, data has shown an alarming fact: children in the South are far more likely to die from a car accident than those in the North.

Government Considers Relaxing Drug And Alcohol Testing Requirements For Truck Drivers

Sharing the road with large trucks can be extremely dangerous, as I have written about in a number of previous blog posts. Fatigued truck drivers and those who drive under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol have been a leading cause of car accidents involving large semi-trucks and motorist fatalities. Luckily, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has in place numerous required safety regulations aimed at limiting unsafe truck driving practices. These rules include maximum driving hours that a truck driver may be on the road for without resting and strict drug/alcohol testing procedures.
