Atlanta’s Interstate Crash Rates
According to state authorities and traffic monitors, Georgia has claimed an average of seventy automobile accidents every hour in recent years. Adding insult to injury, the bulk of these accidents were caused by reckless or careless driving. These errors may have disastrous consequences, particularly at high-traffic intersections and on crowded roadways.
Careless driving causes around 1.5 million accidents in the United States each year. Unfortunately, victims are often left to cope with the repercussions, despite the fact that those who created the disaster bear most of the blame. Emotions of helplessness and confusion are frequent among victims, especially those who have suffered non-voluntary physical or mental trauma.
