Increased Attention for Georgia Red Light Violations

Comments (0)

A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 25,580 people died and many more were injured in 2012 auto accidents from January through September. Being prepared before an accident can enable a victim to obtain all the necessary information that will be helpful to their case.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Georgia red light violators were cited over 400 times during the 2013 Christmas holiday. Law enforcement officials have attributed some violations on increased distracted driving.

According to 2012 statistics, more than 7.3 million red light violations nationally were the result of distractions at the wheel. A research study analyzed 118 intersections with red light cameras and found over 50 percent were directly linked to distracted driving.

Nationally, the fewest red light violations occurred during Halloween, when drivers were alert for costumed pedestrians. The greatest number of violations occurred at Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend.

Georgia law enforcement officials have addressed the red light violation problem when giving distracted driving awareness presentations. Law enforcement officials cite increased distracted driving presentations on increased public awareness and plan to incorporate red light running into the presentations in hopes of similarly raising awareness.

If you or someone you know has been hurt in an auto accident, meet with a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can obtain the relevant evidence including police reports.
