Teen drivers and auto accidents: young drivers, adult charges

Teen drivers are statistically at high risk for making mistakes on the road. Many new drivers do not realize the absolute importance of obeying traffic laws and practicing defensive driving. Especially when friends are along for the ride, a young driver might be tempted to show off by speeding, texting or other unsafe practices. Teen drivers in Georgia who are involved in fatal auto accidents can be criminally charged the same as an older driver if they are found to be at fault for the injury or death of another person. 

Auto accidents claim innocent young lives

Georgia parents would likely admit that being involved in a crash that injures or kills their child is one of their greatest fears. Most parents go to great lengths to keep their children safe while travelling. While proper child safety seats and conscientious driving can go a long way to keeping young passengers safe, there is no guarantee of survival in a crash. When auto accidents are the result of another driver's criminal behavior, innocent children can suffer severe injury or death. 

Pedestrian deaths up almost 50 percent since 2009

Technological advances have increased the safety of vehicles. Cars can now sense when there is a sudden need to stop on the highway and adapt cruise control speeds to help keep the flow of traffic moving smoothly. With these and other advances we expect the number of deaths related to car accidents to decrease.
