There are a number of reasons it might be desirable to prevent car and truck accidents, particularly on a major highway. For one, motor vehicle accidents often result in serious and permanent injury, and any reduction in potential accidents would result in a reduction of people sustaining such injuries. Another reason is that large crashes can stall traffic for hours. On a highway that regularly sees major activity, these delays end up affecting peoples’ abilities to get home, to work, or to any appointment that might be of significance. Unfortunately, as truck and car accidents are relatively common, such delays are as well. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert car accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
Due to the high number of accidents on route I-285, local law enforcement agencies in Dekalb County, Georgia, are teaming up to create a program that will reduce the number of truck accidents that occur. Officials have noted that there has been a steady 3% increase in the number of deadly truck accidents year after year, and that the issue needs to be addressed for both safety and convenience purposes.
As part of the program, officials will be targeting particularly high risk areas. They will stop bus and truck drivers and attempt to educate them about the risks associated with a particular part of the highway, such as areas with especially dangerous blind spots. If the program proves successful, officials will extend it to the rest of the state as well.
