Highways are some of the most dangerous places for Georgia car accidents where hundreds of thousands of collisions occur every single year.

This is why accidents are more likely to happen in these areas and also why they are more likely to be severe in nature when they do happen. Serious collisions happen every day on Georgia roads due to reasons such as driver distractions, speeding, intoxication, fatigue, and more.
