How much do you know about truck tire blowouts?

If you are among the thousands of motorists who take the freeway to work or school, chances are very good there are certain roadside sights you've become accustomed to seeing on your daily commute. For example, you're probably used to seeing various forms of litter, the remains of accidents past and, of course, so-called "road gators."

Holding drunk drivers accountable for more than two decades

While most of us would prefer not to think about it, we regularly share the roads and highways with impaired drivers. One needn't look any further than the Monday morning news headlines for proof of this fact, as there will inevitably be a multitude of truly tragic stories outlining drunk driving accidents both here in Georgia and across the nation.

Study determines which states are safest, most dangerous for older drivers

While America's Baby Boomers are going to be exiting the workforce in droves over the course of the next decade, this doesn't mean they are going to settle quietly into retirement. Indeed, true to the spirit of their generation, many of these boomers will be traveling, volunteering and undertaking new challenges.

The Most Dangerous Highway

Fatal traffic accidents are a regular occurrence on American interstates. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 8 people die each day on major American interstates. While these crashes make up less than 10 percent of the total number of fatal traffic accidents, it is still the case that highways offer a number of hazards not seen on other roads. A deeper dive into the data has identified the most deadly major interstate in the country. The top spot belongs to the interstate that circles Atlanta, I-285.

Coping in the aftermath of a fatal motor vehicle accident

The passing of a loved one is a difficult thing to accept even when death occurs naturally. When negligence in a violent motor vehicle accident claims the life of a loved one, it is even harder to accept. People cope with death in many different ways, but some cannot find any way at all to cope. This makes the initial tragedy much worse. Not only has a fatal motor vehicle claimed the life of an innocent person, it has trickled down to drastically affect one or more family members.
