Even after many years of pleas from law enforcement and those who have lost a loved one by someone who drives after drinking, the problem still looms large all over the country. Getting busted over one drunk driving incident also does not necessarily stop some from becoming repeat offenders. Georgia State Patrol joined city police in the chase to stop a drunk driving suspect but were unsuccessful until his actions are said to have killed a passenger in his car.
School buses are an invaluable mode of transportation for parents who, for any reason, are not able to ferry their children to and from school each day. One group of Georgia parents have filed a lawsuit after seven children were injured in a crash allegedly caused by reckless driving. The bus' video recording system showed the driver possibly displayed reckless driving tendencies in a timeline of events just before the crash.
Using a cell phone while you operate a vehicle greatly increases the likelihood you will end up in a collision. According to the National Safety Council, you are up to 23 times more likely to end up in a car accident while texting than if you had both eyes on the road.
Losing a loved one is never easy but it seems even harder to accept when the loss is due to the negligence of another person. Fatal accidents are often caused by someone who is not giving sufficient attention to the task at hand, usually in operating some type of machine that is capable of causing grave injury, such as a car or truck. A Georgia man was recently a victim in one of the state's latest fatal accidents as he was traveling on Interstate 20.
Deadly crashes can happen at any time and to any person, no matter what precautions a driver may take. There is no guarantee that other drivers are as careful on the road, that weather conditions are always perfect for driving, and that deer and that other animals do not dart out in front of a moving vehicle. A Georgia man has been sentenced after his conviction in causing one of the state's fatal accidents nearly two years ago.
