Are you in the market for a new car? Are you concerned about the seemingly ever rising price of gas or the effect of traditional automobiles on the environment?

Are You Considering an Electric Car?

There are a lot of good things about electric cars and they may be a choice worth considering. However, our Atlanta car accident lawyers urge all consumers to carefully consider safety features as well as gas mileage when they are in the market for a new vehicle.

Ask Safety Questions Before Purchasing an Electric Car

Before purchasing an electric car, it is important to do some research and find out:

  • How long it takes the vehicle to stop. Braking distances may be longer on some electric cars because of their weight.
  • What kind of tires the car requires. Some electric cars may have tires that do not meet the safety standards of gasoline run cars.
  • How fast the vehicle can go. Will you be able to safely merge on to the highway and keep up with traffic?
  • How long you can drive without recharging. Getting stuck on the side of the road can be a dangerous, even life threatening, event.

The answers to these questions may not only influence which car you purchase but also how safe you will be traveling Atlanta area roads.
