Maneuvering the highways of Atlanta can be challenging. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that every year in Georgia more than 1,500 people die as a result of a crash. In addition, more than 135,000 people are injured.

Metropolitan Atlanta counties pose the greatest risk for a crash, which the NHTSA says exceeds the national average crash rate of 5% per year. In Fulton County, the heart of the metropolitan area, the crash rate is almost 10%. 

Other studies have indicated drivers in Atlanta tend to drive longer, faster and harder in comparison to drivers in 4 other representative U.S. cities, including Los Angeles.

Clearly, the risk is high for a car accident injury in Georgia. In addition, 2009 Georgia crash statistics reveal no downward trend when it comes to fatalities in Fulton County. Fatalities there have continued to average between 100 and 120 for the past 5 years.
