Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT)

At S. Burke Law Inc we strive to provide you with current information as it relates to your case and your life. In this article we will be looking at the website of the Georgia Department of Transportation as it relates to traffic accident and crash information in Georgia.
  • GDOT- The Georgia Department of Transportation is responsible not only for highway maintenance and safety but for all forms of transportation in the state. GDOT strives to, "maintain and improve mobility by providing a safe, seamless, intermodal, environmentally-sensitive transportation system".

  • Traffic Data- Traffic monitoring can be a powerful tool for both GDOT and state and local police. In addition to yearly usage totals GDOT maintains a live traffic map. This real-time map allows commuters to check their route before they head out. Doing so not only saves times, it can prevent further accidents along already congested roads. In addition to the traffic map you can view live camera shots from many locations along I-75. Interstate areas with active cameras include I-75 at Hudson Bridge, I-675 and Courtland St.

  • Crash Data- Looking at statewide crash data can help inform police and the public as to the auto accident trends in Georgia. GDOT uses the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) to collect data on traffic fatalities and their causes. Information on this page includes: yearly fatality totals, the change in totals from year to year and the types of accidents that cause fatalities. In 2010 there were 690 Georgia traffic deaths. This number includes accidents with cars/trains, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicycles. This total, while high, is down 16% from 2009.

  • Press Room- The press room at GDOT offers current information on subjects that include: work zone safety, railroad crossing safety and red light enforcement.

Like many state agencies and programs GDOT strives to provide current safety information to the residents of Georgia. Our staff and attorneys hope that the information provided on this page and throughout our website helps you better understand the resources available to you as an accident victim in Georgia.
