Fatal car accidents involving 16-and 17-year-old drivers decreased last year in Georgia, according to a report by the Governors Highway Safety Association. 2012 saw 23 teens killed in car accidents compared to 37 reported in 2011.
Being a responsible driver includes avoiding sudden actions that could endanger motorcyclists on the road, such as cutting across lanes or making wide turns. A person involved in a motorcycle accident may be more vulnerable to catastrophic injuries because the rider can easily be ejected from the vehicle or suffer the full impact of a crash. Luckily, one Georgia motorcyclist was rescued by a kind stranger after what could have been a potentially fatal motorcycle crash.
