Q
I am an Atlanta pedestrian; is a motor vehicle driver required to show any special duty or care towards me under Georgia law?

A

Yes. Anyone who uses the road in Atlanta must exercise ordinary care to avoid causing a Georgia pedestrian accident - this includes both pedestrians and driver. However, because cars can cause either death or serious injury, the amount of care required by the driver is greater. Drivers of motor vehicles have a duty to follow the rules of the road, keep their vehicles under sufficient control, and avoid causing injury.
