Drowsy driving an issue in the ridesharing business

Georgia residents and others who use ridesharing services may need to watch out for tired or fatigued drivers. This is according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Drivers tend to work after being awake for long periods of time, and it may not be possible to check for health issues a driver may have. In some cases, the drivers are compelled to keep driving because of low hourly or per trip wages.

AAA: infotainment systems raise risk for car crash

New technology, especially infotainment systems, can be highly distracting for drivers in Georgia and across the U.S. Researchers from the University of Utah conducted a study on 30 infotainment systems for AAA, all of them found on new 2017 cars. Seven had a moderate level of demand, 11 a high level and 12 very high. Car models with the most demanding infotainment systems include the Audi Q7 QPP, Chrysler 300 C and Dodge Durango GT.

One dead, one injured in George crash

Several law enforcement agencies throughout Georgia county responded to a car accident on Highway 27 that left one person dead and one person injured.

Soft tissue injuries more difficult to prove after car accidents

Car accidents frequently inflict soft tissue injuries. When vehicles collide on Georgia roads, the forces of impact usually jolt or bash the occupants. These sudden movements or impacts could stretch, strain or tear tissue like muscles, tendons or ligaments. These injuries might not be immediately obvious like most broken bones. Hours or even days might pass before a car crash victim realizes that an injury has occurred. The delayed onset of symptoms and the inability of X-rays to identify most soft tissue sprains or strains could complicate the association of the injury with the accident.

Georgia couple killed in truck accident
