Motorcycle Accidents in Georgia
The number of individuals killed in motorcycle accidents in Georgia is alarming. A report of traffic-related fatalities by the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety shows that 12% of drivers were on motorcycles in 2018.
This percentage has continued to increase since 2004 and does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Motorcycle drivers are more vulnerable to injuries while out on the road because, unlike in cars, they are completely exposed.
