Weather conditions such as heavy rains and thick fog can greatly reduce a Georgia driver's visibility. Under these conditions, drivers need to take extra precautions in order to avoid a car accident that could cause serious injuries or even death to the parties involved. Unfortunately, some drivers are not as cautious as they should be when the weather is bad.
Head-on collisions have the potential of resulting in serious or fatal injuries. In the aftermath of this type of car accident, the families of the victims are sometimes left wondering what happened since the investigation at the scene did not readily reveal a cause. A recent accident on Georgia's U.S. Highway 319 was both serious and fatal, and the families may not yet have all the answers they need regarding what happened.
Car crashes seem to happen almost daily due to drivers who consumed alcohol prior to getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Most Georgia drivers are told the dangers of drinking and driving as a part of learning to drive and prior to getting their driver's license. Some drivers seem to either forget this or ignore the consequences, which can lead to a serious or deadly car accident.
People across the country like to enjoy a good workout. That may be anything from playing a game of tennis, playing basketball or even an evening run. Georgia residents may have recently heard about a jogger that was injured in a hit-and-run car accident that occurred recently.
Too many Georgia drivers know the dangers of distracted or reckless driving through personal experience. Adjusting the volume of the car radio or texting on a cell phone could lead to dire consequences. The responsibility of every driver is to get wherever he or she is going safely. This means looking out for other drivers and obstacles while behind the wheel in order to avoid a car accident.
The possible dangers of driving after dark are all too familiar for many Georgia motorists. No matter how experienced or trained a driver may be, limited visibility at night can impair a driver's vision. Further, the probability of encountering an impaired driver tends to increase at night. These factors or any number of other issues could be the cause of a recent fatal car accident on Interstate 16.
Most Georgia motorists know the hectic morning commute to work can take its toll on drivers. The feelings can fluctuate between rushing to get to work and already wanting the day to end. These thoughts may distract drivers from concentrating on their surroundings. Distraction may have been a factor in a recent car accident that took place on a weekday morning.
The very nature of an accident is that it is unpredictable. Sometimes, more than one accident can happen within a short distance. A perfect example of this occurred on Interstate 95 where it and U.S. 17 meet. It was there that a seven-car accident took place. This crash took at least three lives and an unknown number of people were injured.
The dangers of driving after dark are numerous. Factors such as nocturnal creatures coming out to forage and drivers with bad night vision can turn a nighttime ride into a tragedy. This may have been what happened to one 33-year-old man from Georgia who was killed in a fatal car accident that happened in Bluffton.
Some Georgia motorists may not think twice about helping a stranded driver. Doing so certainly comes with its dangers. For one unfortunate driver, and a passenger in his vehicle, it cost lives in the form of a fatal car accident.
