Truck drivers need to have special knowledge and training

Georgians need a driver's license to legally drive a car. To obtain a driver's license, there are steps the potential drivers need to complete. These include passing tests to ensure they know how to safely operate a vehicle. This is also true for trucks drivers. However, because trucks are much larger and pose a much greater threat to other drivers, if they are not operated correctly, the requirements are stricter.

Special requirements for school bus drivers in Georgia

It is important for all drivers in Georgia to be qualified and drive safely. However, it is especially important for certain drivers to be extra cautious. Truck drivers need to be especially careful because when they are involved in accidents it can be very devastating due to the size difference between tractor-trailers and the vehicles on the road. Another type of driver that needs to be especially careful are school bus drivers. Not only are buses bigger than other vehicles but they are also generally transporting children.

Common conditions that can lead to falls in parking lots

People in Georgia expect that store and business owners will keep their stores and buildings in a safe condition. Many people are familiar with slip and fall type accidents though and know that sometimes the owners fail to do this. Most people probably think about slipping on a wet spot on a floor or on something that spilled or fell on the floor. However, owners are also responsible for keeping their parking lots safe and slip and fall accidents can occur in those as well.

There are strict rules prohibiting alcohol use for truck drivers

It is important that all drivers on the roads in Georgia drive safely. However, it is even more important that truck drivers drive safely. When trucks are in tractor-trailer accidents, the results can be very devastating given how much bigger tractor-trailers are than most of the other vehicles on the road.
