This month is Motorcycle Safety Month in Georgia and across the United States. Motorcycle fatalities typically peak in the summer months, thus government agencies and public awareness organizations chose May to highlight the importance of motorcycle safety.

Despite May's special designation, the Georgia State Patrol (GSP) is conducting ongoing activities to promote motorcycle safety in Georgia. For example, the GSP is*:
  • Conducting Operation Full Throttle in which the GSP teaches civic organizations about motorcycle safety. The program, which has already reached thousands of individuals, focuses on what motorcyclists and other drivers can do to prevent Georgia motorcycle accidents.
  • Conducting Motorcycle round ups where the police focus on motorcyclists who are speeding or otherwise driving dangerously.
  • Reminding motorists about the special dangers facing motorcyclists and to be aware of the bikes with which they share the road.
  • Reminding motorcyclists about safe driving habits that could potentially spare them significant injuries or save their lives.

Public awareness and education campaigns may prevent some accidents, but driver error and other issues will continue to contribute to Alpharetta motorcycle accidents and to crashes throughout the state.

If you have been hurt or if you have lost a loved one in a Georgia motorcycle accident, then please contact an Alpharetta car crash attorney at 1.770.518.1133 for more information.
