Preventing Atlanta Auto Accidents: This Summer, Drive Safely And Save Money

The price of gas is nearing $4 a gallon.  Now that it is summer driving season, our Atlanta auto accident attorneys would like to share some tips that will save money on gas and keep you safe on the road.
 
1. Drive at a constant speed.  Rapidly accelerating and braking may reduce your gas mileage by as much as a third.  This means that your impressive 30 miles per gallon is reduced to only 20 miles per gallon.  Changing speed gradually is 5% more efficient in the city and 33% more efficient on the highway.  In money terms, you are saving 20 cents per gallon in the city and more than $1 per gallon on the highway.  And, other drivers won't be startled by your sudden changes in speed.  What a deal!
 
2. Clean out your car.  Removing the extra stuff from your roof rack, trunk and passenger compartment will save 30 to 60 cents per gallon for every 100 pounds removed.  Cleaning out your car also prevents your stuff from becoming a deadly projectile in the event of an Atlanta auto accident.
 
3. Combine trips.  This will save you money on gas and time in the car. The more time you spend in the car, the higher your risk of becoming an Atlanta accident victim.
 
Enjoy your summer.
