We need to work to eliminate fatality accidents in Georgia as we have way too many wrongful deaths on our roads. Georgia and metro Atlanta have some of the deadliest roadways in America according to a report by Vox. Depending on where you look at the statistics, different highways rank as the most deadly. The Vox report accounts for total miles of interstate highway when factoring its conclusions.
Based on total fatality accidents per ten miles of interstate, the report concluded I-285 in metro Atlanta, which traverses DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb, and Clayton counties as Atlanta's perimeter interstate highway, was the nation's deadliest interstate in 2013. The report also notes that Georgia is the seventh worst state for fatality accidents.
Traffic fatality cases are some of the most emotional and difficult for a family to experience. Let us all work to improve traffic safety around Atlanta and make our roads safer.
