Criminal defense: Accident involving moped leads to DUI charges

Charges for driving under the influence of alcohol can have serious consequences if a conviction is obtained. Operating any manner of vehicle while intoxicated can lead to similar charges. Those who face such allegations often find it advisable to seek advice from a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. A 39-year-old man in Georgia is facing multiple charges, including DUI, after he was allegedly involved in an accident while operating a moped.

Motor vehicle accidents claim lives all too often

When drivers are unaware of their surroundings, collisions are bound to happen. Georgia residents know that injuries can often accompany these kinds of motor vehicle accidents. This is particularly true when large trucks are involved. One woman was killed and 17 other people were injured in a multiple vehicle crash with a tractor-trailer.

Failing to obey traffic laws can lead to fatal car accidents

Drivers who fail to obey traffic laws can cause serious problems for fellow motorists. Car accidents are much more likely to occur when drivers do not follow the rules of the road. This can lead to severe injuries, or even fatalities, for anyone involved. A woman visiting in Georgia was killed in a recent collision by one such driver.

Georgia car accidents: Officer injured in crash

Driving while intoxicated, texting while driving, or falling asleep at the wheel are all reasons that could be contributed to negligent driving. When negligent drivers get behind the wheel, they could cause car accidents that not only put their lives at risk but the lives of everyone else on the roadway. A Georgia police officer was recently injured in an accident at the hands of an alleged negligent driver.

Unsecured loads are the focus of annual road safety blitz

Road debris may seem like an environmental issue alone. However, objects that litter highways in northern Georgia and along the I-75 corridor may act as reminders of a potential road hazard. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says that between 2011 and 2014 more than 200,000 motor vehicle accidents were tied to items falling off trucks or other vehicles, according to Science Daily. Unsecured loads are a common cause of truck accidents.
