Drugged driving a growing factor in car crashes

When Georgia motorists think about the dangers of driving under the influence, they likely associate it with alcohol. Massive public health advertising campaigns as well as strong enforcement have highlighted the dangers of drunk driving across the country. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wants to raise awareness about another type of impaired driving, one that involves drugs.

Speed a major factor in car crashes according to NTSB

According to a study from the National Transportation Safety Board, speed has led to an increase in traffic deaths in Georgia and throughout the country. The agency believes that a driver who is speeding is similar to one who is drunk. Both types of motorists are likely to get into accident, and both are likely to hurt or kill someone as a result.

The importance of reporting a collision to an insurance agency

Car accidents never occur at convenient times. Everyone has some other place to be and deadlines to meet. That's why many Georgia drivers find it tempting to put off reporting collisions to their insurance agencies. While it's always critical for drivers to address their medical needs first, there can be severe consequences for a driver failing to make a timely report to their insurer.

How stores can make for hazardous premises

Going to stores is a fact of life for many people, if not most. After all, you need food, clothes, gas and entertainment. Of course, you may have noticed that some establishments seem safer than others. For example, while ascending the staircase of a furniture shop, you might see that the stairs are uneven or cracked.

Coal mining deaths nearly double from 2016 to 2017

Some Georgia workers might be interested to learn that coal mining deaths significantly increased around the country in 2017 to 15 from an all-time low of eight in 2016. However, the number still remained under 20 for the fourth year in a row after hitting 20 each year from 2011 to 2013. In 1966, there were more than 200 coal mining deaths, and 100 years ago, there were more than 2,000 annually. The drop in deaths has been attributed both to improved safety and fewer coal mining jobs.

Right-of-way laws to know

Georgia motorists should be aware of the right-of-way laws for the road. These traffic laws determine who is permitted to advance first in a wide range of driving circumstances. Drivers who are knowledgeable about these laws can avoid incurring an expensive traffic violation, making sure that their driving record is clear and their vehicle insurance rates are low.
