The State of Georgia Has Extensive Law Enforcement According to Georgia Car Accident Lawyer Shane Smith
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Gwinnett County is ranked number five on the “5 Year Trend For The Top 10 Counties of 2012 - Fatalities Year to Year Percent Change” Report.
The data for Gwinnett County is as follows for the five-year trend with respective positive or negative changes:
- The number of annual deaths for Gwinnett County between 2008 and 2012 were 53, 60 57, 50 and 45 respectively.
- Looking at the percentage change year over year (from 2008 to 2009, 2009 to 2010 and so on, for the 2008 to 2012 time-frame) the results are varied. 2009 saw an increase of 13 percent, 2010 saw a 5 percent decrease, 2011 saw a 12 percent decrease and 2012 experienced a 10 percent decrease.
Based on these statistics, one might wonder why there is a decrease in the number of fatalities on Georgia’s roads. One reason why this may occur, according to Loganville car accident attorney is because of Georgia’s thorough law enforcement activities.
What is Georgia doing to keep everyone safe?
According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, along with local and state-wide offices that enforce Georgia State law, the regional Traffic Enforcement Networks in Georgia is put in place to take as many law breakers off the roads putting innocent drivers and pedestrians at risk.
With 16 regional networks within Georgia to cover the state’s 159 counties, the networks are put in place to help more law enforcement officials and state court legal representatives catch and prosecute more offenders committing crimes against others with their car and those on the run from the law. The program works to bring law enforcement individuals together for training and enforcement methods along with passenger more firm laws against vehicular crimes against innocent drivers, occupants and passengers.
The State of Georgia has put in this program to reduce the number of auto accidents and the number of injuries and deaths. However, not every criminal is caught and unfortunately a car crash can occur resulting in innocent drivers and passengers suffering severe injuries of even fatalities. Victims and the families of deceased victims may have suffered damages and speaking with a Gwinnett County car accident attorney is the best way to see what legal rights exist.
