Pedestrian injured in crash involving stolen car in Atlanta

Car accidents are a regrettable fact of life in Georgia, with several cars and trucks colliding every day somewhere in the state. Many of these collisions are minor, with only small amounts of damage that can be easily repaired. But even minor collisions can be deadly when people are not protected by the frames of cars and trucks.

Scooter death spurs Atlanta protest for more bicycle lanes

No one wants a low-speed collision in their car, but no one really dreads it either. A fender bender is unlikely to cause more than a quick jolt and a few scratches on a vehicle's paint job. But the same accident affecting a bicyclist or a pedestrian can mean serious injuries or even death.

How to safely commute to class on your bicycle

As a University of Georgia student, it won't be long before you realize the benefits of commuting to and from class on a bicycle. Not only does it save you time, but it also reduces yor carbon footprint when you drive less and bike more.

When are bicycle crashes more likely in Georgia?

Pedestrian accidents are impossible to ignore because all trips begin and end for most people with walking. Bicycle crashes can be easier for many drivers in Georgia to desensitize themselves because few people use the foot-powered vehicles. College campuses and other specialized communities are more likely to internalize bicycles as partners on the road.

Woman struck in hit-and-run accident in northwest Georgia

Most victims of motor vehicle accidents are on the road in a vehicle of their own. Although some car crashes are fatal, people in cars have the protection of the vehicle's frame in the case of a collision. The same is not true for motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Driver avoids jail time after crash kills 3 in Woodstock

There are many famously unsafe places to be a bicyclist or a pedestrian around the country. Car ownership is very high in Atlanta because the city is not particularly friendly to fresh-air seekers. But that does not stop people who are dedicated to outdoors time, cannot afford to commute with an engine or are simply going a short distance.

Bicyclist injured in Savannah truck accident

Bicycles are a special way of getting around Georgia's towns and cities. They've been around longer than cars, they require a lot less effort to move and they don't need fuel or parking. The biggest drawback for bikers is the lack of protection that bicycles offer, especially considering the risks on the road.

Child struck while crossing the street in southern Georgia

Drivers and passengers are not the only people on the road who may be at risk due to careless or reckless driving. Pedestrians and bicyclists are everywhere, especially in built-up areas like suburbs, towns and cities. And they have far fewer protections in the case of a collision.
