Worries about drugged drivers are increasingly become a concern for many Americans. Insurance News reports that around half of all Americans responding to a new survey from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety expressed concerns about drugged drivers. Survey respondents throughout that “drug-impaired drivers are a bigger problem today compared to three years ago.” marijuana 1

It is likely that many people worry about this issue in part because they don’t understand how the laws work to prevent drugged drivers from endangering others. Drugged driving is not legal, but it can be much more difficult to regulate than drunk driving is. If a drugged driver gets behind the wheel of the car and causes a crash, an Atlanta car accident lawyer can help victims or surviving family members to pursue legal action. States have also passed laws imposing criminal penalties for drugged driving.

Drugged Drivers Raise Atlanta Car Accident Worries

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety indicated that there are significant discrepancies across state laws that make it harder to address the issue of drugged driving as a safety issue.

In 16 states, the law forbids the presence of any prohibited drugs in the system. In five other states, there are limits set for the amount of marijuana that can be in a person’s system before that individual has broken the law.

Discrepancies from one state to the next have left many people confused about what they are actually allowed to do. Unlike the clear .08 blood alcohol concentration limit that exists nationwide, there are different rules for drug use depending upon where a person happens to be at the time he gets behind the wheel. Because of the widespread discrepancies and the lack of standard guidelines, more than 50 percent of Americans do not know what the laws are for drugged driving in their own state.

In addition to not knowing the law, many drivers also do not understand the actual impacts that drug-use can have. Around two-thirds of respondents to the AAA survey said that drunk drivers pose a “very serious” threat to personal safety. Only slightly more than half of the people answering the same question about drug use said that it too was a very serious threat.

As many as one out of every six Americans reported feeling that it would be safe and acceptable for someone to drive an hour after last using marijuana. Scientific data, on the other hand, does not back this up. A person’s driving performance can be affected for as long as three hours after using cannabis products. The driver who has consumed marijuana may experience a number of side-effects impacting driving abilities including sleepiness, deceased handling of the car’s performance, and driver fatigue.

If drivers don’t know what the law is and don’t know how dangerous driving high can be, they are likely to underestimate the risk and even get behind the wheel. Motorists need to be aware of the dangers of drugged driving and clear laws should be passed prohibiting dangerous drugged driving behaviors.

For young children throughout Atlanta, car accidents are one of the top causes of fatalities. While kids may lose their lives as passengers in vehicles, they are also at special risk of becoming involved in a fatal pedestrian accident. Recently, the Wall Street Journal took a close look at some of the potential reasons why children are one of the demographic groups most likely to die in pedestrian accidents. children

Drivers need to be aware that children on the roads are especially vulnerable to being hurt or even killed in a car accident. Motorists traveling through school zones or residential areas should be on the lookout for young kids. If a driver is not paying attention or is careless in some way that causes him or her to hit a child, an Atlanta car accident lawyer can represent the young victim and his or her family.

Attention Span Issues Put Kids at Risk of Atlanta Crashes

The Wall Street Journal reports that children age 10 and under “may not have the cognitive resources to notice objects that appear out of the blue.” When a child reaches the age of 11, his cognitive resources change and the young person becomes just as capable of adults at perceiving unexpected things. For young children, however, it is common to fail to recognize objects that appear at times when their attention is focused elsewhere.

The inability to see objects outside of your area of focus is called perceptual blindness or termed inattention. Researchers in Germany decided to test the extent of perceptual blindness in younger children.

A total of 480 school children are included in the German study. Children were asked to view several videos including 30-second scenes showing basketball players. The kids were told that they should only watch the players who had white jerseys on and that they should count the number of passes that these particular players made.

In the third video that the children were asked to watch, a man in a gorilla costume appeared on the basketball court for nine seconds. The man came into the scene from the right of the screen, walked across the basketball court, and left the image off the side of the screen.

After viewing the videos, the children were asked if they spotted anything unusual. A total of 43 percent of the kids said that they observed the gorilla on the basketball court. Older children were more likely to notice the gorilla. For example, 15 percent of kids aged eight noticed the gorilla. A total of 31 percent of nine year olds noticed, and 32 percent of 10-year-olds said that they saw the gorilla. For kids between the ages of 11 and 15, a full half said that they saw the gorilla.

The younger kids did not see the gorilla because their brain attention was not suddenly able to shift. The same phenomenon might put these young children at risk if they are walking somewhere and focused on something else when a car suddenly comes up. The fact that kids experience this perceptual blindness could help to explain why as many as 25 percent of all kids killed in traffic accidents are pedestrians at the time of the incident. Drivers need to be on the lookout for these kids and make sure they are not putting them in jeopardy.

Drivers in Atlanta have smarter cars than ever before. While self-driving vehicles remain a novelty and are not available to the public yet, there have been tremendous advances in vehicle technologies designed to make driving easier and more intuitive for motorists. Many advanced safety features that have been introduced are designed to reduce the risk of crashes by taking over tasks from drivers and/or eliminating the potential for human error.  smart-456070-m

While advances in vehicle technologies are a good thing, relying too much on tech features can be dangerous. Technology is not foolproof and it is no substitute for making smart and informed choices behind the wheel.  Drivers are still ultimately responsible for their behavior and for their actions and inaction. If a driver does not do what he is supposed to, victims of the crash can contact an Atlanta motor vehicle accident lawyer to help them pursue legal action for any losses that result.

Safety Technologies Alone Aren’t Enough to Prevent Atlanta Car Accidents

According to AOL Auto, around 69 percent of all vehicles on the market today have blind-spot warning systems as optional add-ons. These technologies alert drivers if there is something in their path that they may not be able to see.  Many cars also have lane departure warning systems that will let drivers know if they have veered out of their own lane or lane-keep systems that help drivers to stay steady in their own lanes.

Although these add-ons and innovative features are supposed to make driving easier and safer, experts are warning motorists that they should not assume the technology will save them from an accident.  The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety recently teamed up with MIT AgeLab to test six of the technologies and see whether they are actually effective at helping to stop crashes.

The study involved the use of cars from various automakers so that different versions of the same kinds of crash-reduction technologies could be tested. The results revealed that some systems were much better than others, but that all had major weaknesses. For example:

  • Most blind spot alert systems had a hard time detecting vehicles that were moving quickly. The systems were especially likely to have problems detecting a car in a blind spot when drivers were merging on to busy highways. This is one of the times when drivers may depend the most on this technology to see if they have a clear path to merge.
  • Blind spot monitoring systems had a difficult time detecting motorcycles.  Motorcycles are detected 26 percent later than passenger cars that were in the blind spot. By the time the motorcycle was detected, the distance between the car and the motorcycle had dropped by around 14 percent.
  • Lane departure warning systems did not work effectively in construction zones, when the weather was bad, or when pavement markers were worn.

This study shows that vehicle detection systems, like most technologies, are far from perfect. Drivers need to remember this and not rely too much on them to prevent crashes from occurring.

In the state of Georgia, Peach Pass allows motorists to go through tolls without stopping. Toll passes are intended to increase convenience for motorists and to reduce traffic congestion. However, some states are exploring another possible use for these in-vehicle devices: reducing the risk of car crashes caused by speeding drivers. speeding

Speeding is one of the most dangerous things that a motorist can do on the road. Since 2003, speeding has been a factor in around a third of car accident deaths across the United States. Going too fast plays a role in causing 30 percent of total car crashes, including non-fatal accidents. Drivers who operate their vehicles faster than it is safe for them to do so need to be held accountable. An Atlanta car accident lawyer can help pursue action against speeders on behalf of crash victims, but it is better to stop someone from speeding before an accident happens and lives are changed forever.

Can Toll Passes Help Reduce Atlanta Speeding Accidents

Peach Pass is Georgia’s state-specific version of E-Z pass, which is a toll pass that operates in 15 states. Fox News reports that some states have now begun to use their agreements with E-Z pass to do more than just allow motorists a simple and efficient way to pay highway tolls. These devices are now being used to monitor and even punish speeders.

Three states have pioneered the effort to use toll passes to force drivers to slow down. In Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland, the E-Z pass devices will be suspended if drivers commit multiple speeding violations. The monitoring right now is only occurring as drivers travel through the toll lanes. In Maryland, for example, drivers are allowed to go only 30 miles-per-hour through toll plazas. Any motorists who drive 12 miles-per-hour or more over this limit will have their E-Z pass accounts suspended for 60 days.

Although there is some public outcry over using these toll passes in this manner, there may also be some merit in this idea if it can force drivers to slow down.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that in 2012, around 30 percent of all deadly car accidents on interstate and freeways were speeding related. A total of 1,185 people died in car crashes in interstates and freeways because of drivers going too fast. Highways were the second most common type of road where speeding-related fatalities occurred. The most deaths due to speeding actually happened on minor roads within local cities and towns. In total, there were 10,219 deaths due to speeding over the course of the 2012 year.

Drivers need every reminder they can get to avoid going too fast and endangering motorists on the road. If the E-Z pass program is effective at slowing people down, more states may adopt this approach and Georgia may some day use its Peach Pass to monitor and punish drivers who endanger others due to their excessive speed.

According to Forbes, drivers become involved in motor vehicle collisions and make insurance claims an average of once every 17.9 years. Car crashes happen to almost everyone at some point in their lives, with some crashes much more serious than others. metal-570770-m

Although car crashes are common, they don’t have to be inevitable. Many crashes are caused by drivers who make careless decisions. If you are the victim of a crash caused by the negligence of another driver, contact an Atlanta car accident lawyer for help taking legal action to recover compensation. If you are the one behind the wheel, be sure that you are making the right choices to avoid hurting yourself or others.

Resolve to Avoid Atlanta Car Accidents This Year

Now that 2015 has arrived, many people are making New Year’s resolutions. This year, consider making a resolution to avoid some of the most dangerous driving behaviors. By making a few simple promises and sticking to them throughout the year, you can significantly reduce the chances of getting into crash. To help stay safe all year long, you should resolve to:

  • Always keep your attention on the road. In the United States, there are nine people killed each day on average in car crashes that are caused by distracted drivers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there are also another 1,153 people killed every single day as a result of distracted driving. To avoid contributing to this problem and to lower your accident risk, resolve to keep your hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road and your focus on your driving.
  • Always drive at a safe speed. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has indicated that around 30 percent of car accident deaths in the United States involve people who are driving their cars too fast. Speeding-related crashes occur not just when you go over the limit but also when you operate your vehicle at a speed that is not safe for current weather conditions. Slow down this year- especially if the weather is bad.
  • Never drink and drive. CNN reports that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has urged lawmakers to reduce the permissible blood alcohol concentration limit from .08 to .05. By the time you have had enough to drink to reach the legal limit, your crash risk has been significantly increased. People who have consumed alcohol have their judgment impaired, experience delayed reflexes and are not able to stay focused on the road. You should try to avoid driving after having had even one or two drinks if you want to maximize road safety this year.
  • Stop aggressive driving. Aggressive driving includes things like following behind other drivers too closely and unsafe passing. Many people get impatient and engage in these behaviors. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has indicated that around 67 percent of survey respondents said the aggressive driving behavior of other motorists had made them feel unsafe at some point over the past year. You shouldn’t be one of these aggressive drivers that endangers others.

By making a resolution to stop these dangerous driving behaviors, hopefully you can have a safe 2015 without any crashes or close calls on the road. While you remain at risk if other drivers make unsafe choices, at least you aren’t a part of the problem with road safety in Atlanta.

December is a festive month, but it can also be a dangerous month. Many Atlanta collisions occur over the course of this month as people visit holiday parties or New Years Eve events and end up getting behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol. drunk-531484-m

Preventing intoxicated driving needs to be a top priority for motorists this holiday. To draw attention to the issue, December has been classified as National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. Drivers need to take the opportunity to learn about the statistics and risks of intoxicated driving so they can make informed choices. Victims of crashes also need to learn what their rights are and should strongly consider speaking with an experienced Atlanta drunk driving accident lawyer for help pursuing a damage claim.

Drunk Driving Collision Prevention Efforts

In 1982, December was designated National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. In 2010, as part of efforts to prevent deaths due to unsafe driving, President Barack Obama changed the name of the monthly awareness campaign to National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. This month now encompasses education not only about the risks of drugged and drunk driving, but also about the risks associated with driving while distracted.

The data on drunk driving crashes shows that public education on the important issue of impaired driving is definitely still necessary to try to reduce accident risks. According to True Car, a full 41 percent of motor vehicle collisions in the country are related to alcohol. Because there are so many crashes, someone loses his life every 30 minutes on average in an impaired driving crash. Every two minutes, someone in the country gets hurt by a drunk driver.

Each year, around 600,000 Americans get hurt in crashes with drunk drivers, which further reinforces the staggering truth about the risks. Based on the statistical data, around three out of every 10 people in the U.S. will likely become directly involved with a motor vehicle accident death caused by a drunk driver. This could include having a family member or close friend killed. Altogether, these crashes caused by intoxicated motorists cost more then $51 billion. This is a huge amount of money that comes out of the pockets of victims, who need to pursue a claim for compensation from those responsible for the crash.

Preventing the unnecessary physical and financial damages is very important for every motorist and National Impaired Driving Prevention month aims to educate the public about these real risks and provide some proposed solutions.

Some of the different things people are urged to do include:

  • Selecting someone to act as a sober driver before starting to participate in any holiday celebrations.
  • Avoiding serving alcohol to someone who are not certain is at least age 21.
  • Planning parties that reduce the risk of drunk driving. So-called “safe” parties may offer non-alcohol drink choices to designated drivers and other guests who don’t wish to drink. Hosts should also stop serving alcohol during the final hour of holiday gatherings.

By taking these steps, hopefully fewer Atlanta impaired driving collision will occur this holiday season.

Car sharing services have become a popular way for locals and visitors alike to get around Atlanta. In fact, services like Uber Atlanta describe themselves as “Atlanta’s best way to request a safe, reliable and affordable ride within minutes.” While these car sharing services can be convenient for people who need transportation and can bring in much needed income for drivers, there are also significant risks to both passengers and those who drive the vehicles. car accident 2

The problem that arises is: who is responsible in the event that a motor vehicle accident occurs. Passengers in car accidents can typically take legal action with the help of Atlanta car accident lawyers if they are hurt while riding in a friend’s car, provided they can prove that the friend is negligent or broke the rules of the road. Insurance pays the bills for losses and those who are harmed in a collision can be fully compensated for damages. However, insurance companies have demonstrated resistance to providing coverage in cases where drivers are offering their car as a de facto taxi service through ride sharing programs. This can make it more complicated for collision victims to pursue a claim for compensation.

Insurance Companies Take Tough Stance Against Liability for Atlanta Collisions Caused by Car-Sharers

The SF Gate recently reported on leaked documents showing one major insurance company’s position on car sharing services. The documents come from Geico, who has taken a strong stance against providing coverage for people who use their cars for commercial purposes. Geico is not the only insurance company to limit coverage under these circumstances, but the leaked documents make clear that auto insurers are taking a “hard line.”

The internal sales-training document urges customer service members to “group reject” policies of customers who are involved in ride-sharing. Customer service professionals are told to inform customers that they either must prove they are no longer driving for Uber or Lyft or they must seek insurance coverage elsewhere. Ride-service drivers are also referred to a fraud unit when they need to make claims.

The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America has spoken out on the issue of coverage for ride sharing drivers, indicating that “Private passenger auto policy isn’t intended to cover livery services,” because providing livery services is a “material change in the nature of the risk being insured.” Since it is a material change, many states will allow auto insurers to cancel coverage if it turns out that their insured driver is offering rides.

State Farm also said that livery use is not insured and that “customers should not depend on their personal auto insurance to protect them while driving for a ride-sharing service.” However, there are some insurance companies working to create hybrid policies that would allow motorists to buy additional coverage if they want to provide ride-sharing.

Unless a motorist has a policy that covers commercial transportation, those who get into a car with that driver are taking a risk that they won’t be fully compensated if a crash happens. If an accident has already occurred, it will become more complicated for victims to sue and they need to ensure they have a top-notch lawyer on their side.

For nearly a decade, efforts have been made to prevent motorists from using electronic devices behind the wheel. Laws banning or limiting cell phone use have been passed throughout the country in more than 40 states, and public education campaigns have aimed to inform people about the tremendous risks associated with operating a vehicle while your brain is focused elsewhere. communication-2-1090898-m

Despite these efforts, however, a new article from USA Today suggests that the lessons aren’t sinking in. Drivers continue to focus on their phones or other electronics on the road, even when they are aware of the risks. These motorists put themselves and others in grave danger and victims of collisions caused by distracted driving need to know their rights. An Atlanta car accident lawyer can help pursue a damage claim after a distracted driving crash so those who are harmed can be compensated for their losses.

Distracted Driving Behaviors Endanger Atlanta Motorists

Over the past six year period of time, the percentage of drivers who do activities on their smart phones while operating their vehicles has steadily increased. This troubling information comes from a survey that State Farm has conducted each year since 2009. The survey measures drivers behaviors, and their attitudes, about distracted driving. The research shows that driver behaviors don’t always match up with their beliefs.

While most drivers acknowledge that is is dangerous to take their attention away from the road, a full 26 percent of drivers said that they access the Internet while driving. This is double the 13 percent in 2009 who were on the web while operating a vehicle. The share of drivers who email or who use social media has also increased:

In 2009, 15 percent of motorists admitted to reading email while driving, but this year 25 percent said they email behind the wheel.
In 2009, only nine percent of motorists admitted to looking at social networks while driving their cars, but this year a full 20 percent said that they look at Twitter and other social networks.

This dramatic increase in the number of people online while operating vehicle has occurred at the same time as motorists have reduced the amount of time they spend talking on the phone while driving. Unfortunately, this means that motorists have traded one high risk behavior (holding their phone and talking) for another, even higher-risk, action.

The director of technology research for State Farm says it is unclear why Internet use has increased while people are driving. One possibility is that people tend to have misconceptions about what they can do while still being safe drivers. Many motorists believe they can multi-task and may think that looking at their phone or social media account will only take a second so it is safe.

Unfortunately, the reality is that it is really dangerous to try to text, read or send emails, or look at your social media sights in the car. No driver should be doing these behaviors and those that do need to be held accountable if their negligence and carelessness causes a crash to happen.

Senior drivers can pose a danger to themselves and others on the roads. Unfortunately, as people get older, they may experience a decline in their physical, mental and sensory abilities. This can result in slowed reactions and poor judgment when behind the wheel, which increases the risk of collisions occurring. elderly

Seniors need to think carefully about whether they are safe to continue driving or not. Unfortunately, sometimes older people are not able to make that decision on their own. When this happens, family members need to step in and prevent an older motorist from becoming involved in a motor vehicle collision. If a senior does continue driving too long and causes a collision as a result of his inability to drive, victims of the crash may be able to take legal action against the older driver with the help of an Atlanta car accident lawyer.

Older Driver Safety Awareness Week Can Prevent Atlanta Collisions

To draw attention to the issue of senior driving risks, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) organizes an Older Driver Safety Awareness Week each December. In 2014, this week was scheduled for December 1 through December 5. While the week is coming to an end for the year, the lessons that are focused on during this public education event can provide important insight at all times of the year.

The goal of Older Driver Safety Awareness week is to “promote understanding of the importance of mobility and transportation,” in helping seniors to remain active in the community. Seniors need to know that transportation will not be a barrier that leaves them stranded at home, because otherwise this creates the incentive to continue driving even after they are no longer able to do so safely.

Each day during Older Driver Safety Awareness week, there is a different issue to focus on. These include:

  • Identifying changes that come with aging and that can affect driving. It is important to plan early for what happens when physical, emotional and cognitive changes make it impossible to drive.
  • Having conversations with family. The holidays, when families come together, can be a good time to open a dialogue about driver safety as a senior ages.
  • Screening and evaluations. Seniors should be evaluated by an occupational therapist, doctor or other medial professional to determine if they are still safe to drive.
  • Equipment that can help senior drivers. Adaptive equipment can sometimes make it possible for a senior with some physical limitations to continue driving for longer than he or she otherwise would be able to do so.
  • Adapting to changes. Seniors need to make adjustments to drive safely, and family and friends need to work with seniors to devise a transportation plan when driving is no longer an option.
  • By focusing on the major issues that affect older drivers, hopefully accidents can be prevented when unsafe seniors are kept off the roads.

Prevention of drunk driving has clearly been a top priority for lawmakers and safety groups. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and other advocates have a strong national organization dedicated to encouraging people to always drive sober. Lawmakers have imposed strict penalties on those who drive while impaired and the National Transportation Safety Board is even urging states to lower the permissible blood alcohol concentration limit to .05 down from the current .08 limit. drunk alcohol

Despite the fact that state lawmakers and safety organizations have worked hard to reduce drunk driving, the Centers for Disease Control report that 10,000 people still die each year due to collisions caused by impaired motorists. A recent study conducted by Boston University and the University of Minnesota sheds some light on why so many drunk driving deaths keep occurring: the policies that could perhaps best prevent these collisions are largely very unpopular.  This makes it difficult for lawmakers to pass regulations and rules that have a meaningful impact on bringing down the number of deaths caused by alcohol use.

Ultimately, regardless of what the specific laws are, drivers have a basic duty of care while on the road. Driving while impaired is considered unreasonably careless or negligent and a drunk driver can thus be sued or have a claim made against him if he causes a crash while intoxicated. An Atlanta drunk driving accident lawyer can help those who have been hurt by someone who is drunk to take legal action.

Taking a Close Look at Policies to Prevent Atlanta Drunk Driving Deaths

According to the MinnPost, experts recently reviewed and ranked 29-different policies related to alcohol use. Evidence-based research was done to rank the policies in terms of how effectively they could prevent fatalities or illnesses resulting from impaired driving.

Unfortunately, it turns out that many of the policies that have enjoyed broad support and that have passed in recent years are not all that effective at preventing impaired driving. In fact, between 1999 and 2011, there was a “big increase” in the number of policies passed that were considered to be less effective.

Policies that have been widely accepted and adopted generally focus on the reduction of underage drinking and driving.  Other laws that have passed in recent years in states throughout the U.S. also include instituting graduated driver’s licenses for young people; and holding adult hosts liable under some circumstances for the action taken by partygoers who leave events after having too much to drink.

Researchers however, found that policies that have been proven to work better at reducing alcohol-related fatalities have found little traction. For example, restricting where alcohol can be bought or raising taxes on alcohol can make a bigger impact on bringing the death toll down.

While these policies may continue to remain unpopular because of the importance of balancing freedom and liberty with protecting public safety, drivers need to remember that it is up to them to stay sober and avoid endangering others.  If a driver gets drunk and causes a crash, victims should call an experienced attorney for help.
