Atlanta Left Hand Turn Accident Lawyer

Because Atlanta is ranked the 11th deadliest metro for pedestrian accidents in the nation, people who walk the streets of Atlanta or commute on foot to work need to know what to look out for and what to do or not do to reduce their chances of being involved in an accident.

Dangers of Left-Hand Turn Accidents

Pedestrians need to be on the lookout for cars turning left while they are crossing the street. Even if a pedestrian is crossing in a crosswalk and the walk traffic signal is on, they still need to use caution to avoid injuries. This is because many drivers of automobiles drive distracted, speed, or don’t look out for pedestrians. Additionally, drivers sometimes speed up to make a quick left turn in front of oncoming traffic or before the light changes. When a driver does either of these things, they are likely to strike a pedestrian by turning into them.

Why Drivers Should Always Be Vigilant Near Crosswalks

Although pedestrians who walk to work near traffic or who cross downtown streets need to be vigilant, drivers of motor vehicles need to be the most cautious, so they don’t cause an accident that may result in an injury or fatality. Drivers always should look for pedestrians before they make a left or right turn to reduce the risk of pedestrian accidents in Georgia.
