Can "the psychology of driving" prevent motorcycle accidents?

AdobeStock_211103588.jpegIn just the last decade, distracted driving has become one of the top causes of fatal accidents across the country. When individuals think of distracted driving, they usually link it with anything that pulls a driver's eyes away from the road. 

Visual distractions can make the roads especially dangerous for motorcyclists on Georgia roads. However, a new study states that drivers may rely less on their vision and more on their memory when behind the wheel.

Remember these pedestrian safety tips when out for Halloween

AdobeStock_288371192.jpgWith Halloween fast approaching, you and many other Georgia families are likely preparing for various festivities. You may enjoy the holiday and have decorated your home to your liking, and your kids have probably already told you the many ideas they have for costumes. You all have a sense of excitement.

Of course, as exciting as dressing up and trick-or-treating can be, it can also be dangerous for various reasons. As a parent, you certainly want to make sure your kids stay safe. You may already plan to stick to your neighborhood and only go to familiar houses, but if you plan on taking the kids out on foot, it is important to remember safety measures for pedestrians.

Pedestrians still face risks, even with smart technology

AdobeStock_56313353.jpegThere is no doubt that pedestrians are the most vulnerable on our roads. Sharing the roads with much larger vehicles without any protection places them at a high risk. That is why Georgia and other states around the nation have specific traffic laws that regulate a pedestrian's right-of-way. 

Unfortunately, the laws in place do not always protect pedestrians. Pedestrians still face the highest risk on our roads, and that danger only seems to be increasing.

What kind of injuries do emergency responders face?

AdobeStock_12969641.jpegEmergency medical technicians and service workers are the individuals who rush into dangerous situations to help others who are injured. 

There is no doubt that this is honorable work. However, there is also no doubting that work requiring individuals to run into the face of danger would carry a significant risk of injury. And, as it turns out, the people dedicated to healing the injured often suffer severe injuries themselves while they are on the job.

Beware at the bus stop: Illegal passing endangering students

AdobeStock_176919258.jpegThe start of a new school year means that children once again will be rising early to catch the bus to school. Parents who see their kids off to the bus stop in the morning should not have reason to worry about their child's safety.

However, there seems to be a nationwide epidemic that is putting students at risk at the bus stop.

Report: Women face even greater risks after a work injury

AdobeStock_228148450.jpegSuffering an injury at work can be a traumatic, painful and frightening experience. While workers' compensation can provide significant help to Georgia workers and their families after an injury, workers often still face a long and stressful healing process. 

But according to a recent study, workers who suffer severe workplace injuries also face serious risks involving their mental health. 

Does your job expose you to cancer risks?

AdobeStock_140277866.jpgOccupations in some industries pose known risks of exposure to carcinogenic toxins. Coal miners and firefighters are just some of the workers whose jobs expose them to cancer. Along with arsenic, carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, many other substances can cause cancer.

However, many workers in Georgia are not even aware of the risks of bodily harm or life-threatening diseases like cancer they face each day. Even if your job seems safe, it could expose you to hazards that can harm your health.

Cycling is a fun but dangerous activity

AdobeStock_83245730.jpgCyclists and vehicle drivers must obey the same Georgia traffic laws. Unfortunately, many motorists see bicycle riders as a nuisance and treat them with little consideration on the roads. If you are a cycling enthusiast, it is crucial to be alert if you want to avoid severe injuries.

Although you might have legal grounds to sue a negligent driver who causes you to crash, the chances are good that the driver will assert that you were to blame. If you make bike safety a priority, you might avoid trouble.

How parents can help their teens stay safe behind the wheel

AdobeStock_116089288.jpegCar accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers across the nation. While the rate of fatal car accidents involving teens has been slowly decreasing over the years, there is no doubt that teens still face a significant risk whenever they get behind the wheel.

But there are measures that Georgia parents can take to teach their children and help them become safe drivers. Here are a few essential tips parents should consider:

Electric scooter accident calls attention to unsafe roads

AdobeStock_279706438.jpegEver since electric scooters hit city streets across the country, there have been a wide variety of concerns. From issues over helmet use to catastrophic injuries, the negative issues almost seem to outweigh the convenience. 

Now, there have been three fatal electric scooter accidents in Atlanta. And these recent tragedies are leading many people to rethink scooter safety as well as the conditions of our city's roads.
