Slow driving may be as dangerous as speeding

The risks of driving too fast are obvious, and speeding does lead to car accidents in Georgia and all over the country. However, driving too slowly can also be dangerous. In fact, a number of states have laws that penalize drivers for doing it. Slow driving can increase accident risk by causing confusion, disorganization or catching other drivers off-guard.

Distracted driving is a major concern

Distracted driving is a major issue for motorists in Georgia and around the country. In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 391,000 people received injuries in vehicle accidents caused by such inattentive motorists. and 3,477 people died in such accidents.

The dangers of same-level slip and fall accidents for customers

Employers in Georgia may be underestimating the danger of slip and fall accidents on their premises. According to a study by New Pig, an authority in drips, leaks and spills, employers who ignore these potential hazards may suffer losses in productivity as well as significant medical costs and liability. New Pig sites data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicating that the highest number of workplace injuries are caused by same-level slip-and-fall accidents. According to the 2017 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, the cost for these falls was $11 billion in medical expenses and workers' compensation in 2016.
