Distracted driving is a growing issue on Georgia roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that 3,450 people died in distraction-related car crashes in 2016. Of these crashes, 14 percent involved cellphones. Distracted driving is also an under-reported phenomenon since many drivers do not admit their negligence to the police.
Daylight saving time could increase the risk of getting into a car crash, according to to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. As a result, Georgia motorists should use extra caution when they hit the road.
A car accident can happen in an instant and fender-benders happen every day across the country. Would you know what to do after a crash?
