A recent study finds that Atlanta drivers face a considerably higher risk
of being involved in an accident. The likelihood of having an accident
while driving in Atlanta is 43.8 percent higher than the national average.
Furthermore, the average time between accidents for an Atlanta driver
is 7 years. This can prove to be a dangerous proposition when one thinks
how much time Metro-Atlanta residents spend in their cars.
In light of this higher risk, it is extremely important that Metro-Atlanta
drivers take steps to protect themselves. First and foremost,
safe driving is a must. Everyone should take care to drive responsibly and safely. This means
refraining from texting while driving or engaging in any other unsafe driving habits. Carrying adequate
auto insurance is also extremely important. All drivers should review their policies to understand what types of
coverage they have and make sure that their coverage is adequate, not
only to protect other drivers but also to protect their own family.
