A Report on 2011 Suwanee Motor Vehicle Accidents
Posted on Jun 01, 2011
Many local police departments in Gwinnett County, including the Suwanee Police Department, have been unable to use radar or laser to detect speeders and issue tickets due to an ongoing dispute with the Gwinnett Municipal Association. Accordingly, speeding tickets issued in Suwanee during the first four months of 2011 were far and few between. In fact, only 134 tickets were issued compared to 990 during the first four months of 2010. The Gwinnett County Sherriff's Department and the Georgia State Patrol continue to have the authority to issue speeding tickets.
Yet, Suwanee accidents have not increased. In fact, they have dropped by 5.5% as compared to 2010 numbers. From January - April 2011, 328 accidents were reports compared to 347 during the comparable period of 2010.
Despite the Decrease Some Suwanee Locations Remain More Dangerous Than Others
Lawrenceville -Suwanee Road, also known as Highway 317, has been the scene of the most accidents. In April alone, 12 accidents were reported on Highway 317 at the intersections with I-85, Satellite Boulevard, and Buford Highway. The most dangerous Suwanee intersection in April 2011 was Peachtree Industrial Boulevard/McGinnis Ferry Road, where eight accidents occurred.
To all those injured in Suwanee car accidents, we extend our best wishes for a fast and complete recovery.
