Kennesaw Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Driving any type of vehicle is potentially dangerous, especially in the metro Atlanta area. Motorcycles are one of the most hazardous methods of transportation, leaving drivers in precarious situations on Georgia roads and highways. With only the minimal protections of riding gear such as a helmet or riding jacket, Atlanta motorcyclists tend to be much more vulnerable than other drivers. Riders can be easily ejected and thrown to hard pavement causing serious or catastrophic injuries.
Georgia Motorcycle Statistics
According to statistics, most Georgia motorcycle accidents occur at intersections. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist involved in a crash has a 35 times greater chance of death than a person involved in a car crash. They are 16 times more likely to sustain a serious injury.
In 2011, Allstate and the Georgia Department of Transportation began posting signs at some of the most dangerous Atlanta intersections for motorcyclists. These diamond-shaped, yellow “LOOK” signs are designed to bring Georgia motorcycle awareness to attention for all drivers.
Dangerous Atlanta Intersections
In 2009, the Georgia Department of Transportation and Allstate performed a study to determine the most dangerous Georgia intersections. Several intersections in Fulton & Dekalb Counties were identified in that list:
- 14th Street and Peachtree
- Barge Road and Campbelltown Roads
- Camp Creek Parkway and Welcome All Road
- 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue
- Bolton Road and Marietta Road
- Buford Highway and Peachtree Street
- Delmar Lane and Delmoor Court
