Accidents caused by human error are becoming more common

Government data reveals that more than 6 million road traffic accidents take place around the country each year, and the overwhelming majority of them are caused by motorists who made some sort of error. Many modern automobiles feature sophisticated safety systems that are designed to anticipate and correct driver mistakes, but they have not been enough to prevent road fatalities from increasing in both 2015 and 2016 in Georgia and other states.

Zero car crash deaths no longer a utopian fantasy

The goal of eliminating driver deaths in car accidents in Georgia and elsewhere likely sounds far-fetched at first. It may bring to mind promises of self-driving cars and high-speed mass transit. Autonomous vehicles and reduced time spent on the highway could contribute, but statistics from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show that manufacturers are paving the way to zero deaths now.

Independent truckers plan protest of electronic logging mandate

Many truck drivers in Georgia are independent contractors while others work as employees for companies. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is about to require that all truck drivers across the country install electronic logging devices in their trucks, but independent truckers are protesting this move as an invasion of their privacy.

How truckers' drug arrests go unnoticed by employers

The opioid crisis has impacted commercial truck drivers across Georgia and the U.S. Some drivers who are addicted to legal prescription drugs like Oxycontin eventually turn to illegal drugs like heroin. This has led to documented drug-related truck accidents. To make matters worse, many trucking companies don't realize that a driver has been arrested for drug charges until it's too late.
