Researchers study effect of new tech on drivers

Since 2014, the annual number of traffic deaths has increased by 10 percent. Drivers in Georgia are probably thinking that technology is to blame. While public safety officials have not made a definitive link yet, this indeed seems to be the case. Mobile tech and automated features are making many drivers distracted and complacent.

Deaths from pedestrian accidents increase again in 2017

A recent rise in pedestrian deaths is being attributed to distracted walkers and drivers using smartphones and other handheld devices. According to research by the Governors Highway Safety Association, more than 6,000 pedestrians lost their lives in 2017. In Georgia, pedestrian deaths rose by 11 percent. While no scientific conclusions have yet to be made, experts believe that distractions as well as intoxicated walking could account for the increase.
