There are reasons for the various traffic laws in Georgia. Many may seem tedious or pointless, but they are in place to keep drivers safe. People may be able to get away with breaking them from time to time, like rolling through a stop sign or running a red light, but these drivers are taking big risks. These risks can turn into needless car accidents and people suffer significant injuries as a result.
Georgians have been using busses to get to various locations for a long time now. They can be a very efficient and relatively inexpensive way to get many people to where they need to go. This is true for both public transportation and private bus companies who may make longer trips, such as Greyhound. While using busses can be very efficient, the other vehicles on the road can suffer major damages when busses are in commercial vehicle accidents.
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.
There are many different types of businesses in Georgia. Many of these businesses own vehicles that drive on the roads. Some drive people around as part of the business such as taxi drivers, bus drivers and other companies that transport people. Other businesses use the vehicles to transport their employees and the equipment the employees will need to complete their job. Many contractors have vehicles for this purpose.
The last possible thing parents want to think about when they lead their children onto a school bus is the possibility that their child could be seriously injured or killed in an accident. Unfortunately, as much as we offer safeguards to assure that children will be safe on and near a bus, accidents still do happen.
This blog has discussed the fact that accidents involving commercial vehicles often have serious and sometimes devastating consequences. Because of the sizes and weight of many of these vehicles, the injuries they can cause tend to be even worse than those in other crashes. Whether a bus full of people, or a truck carrying heavy cargo, commercial vehicle accidents can wreak havoc on the lives of anyone involved in or even near them.
