Approximately 250 pedestrians are killed each year in Georgia, with countless other serious injuries. Georgia sits at the crossroads of the South, and Metro Atlanta is one of the busiest road systems in the country. Georgians on average own 2 cars per household, and most drive alone to work each day with an average commute of nearly half an hour. With so many drivers putting so many miles on Georgia’s roads every day, it is surprising we do not hear more about these incidents.
Drivers distracted by their cell phones, hurrying to reach their destinations, ignoring traffic signals, or driving under the influence or simply too tired to drive safely can all cause an collision with a pedestrian. Of course, pedestrians must take due care for their own safety, but drivers can engage in all sorts of other careless and reckless driving behavior, and present a constant threat to people walking or riding their bikes alongside Georgia’s busy roadways.
When it is car v. person, the person will lose. The risk of death, serious and even catastrophic injury, including traumatic brain injury is obvious when a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds and traveling at almost any speed collides with the unprotected body of an unsuspecting pedestrian victim.
