Traffic roundabouts can help to reduce serious accidents

Drivers in Georgia may find that rural intersections can be especially risky for car accidents. Rural intersections are often managed with only stop signs, even those with 55 mph speed limits. This can lead to accidents that take place at high rates of speed, causing severe personal injuries and even fatalities. The likelihood and severity of these crashes can be exacerbated at night, in poor weather conditions or when brush and vegetation in the area obstruct visibility.

Equaling a social security disability listing

While the Social Security Administration's (SSA) listing of impairments is extensive, it is not uncommon for people to have an unlisted condition that makes performing work impossible. In those cases, the SSA will approve a social security disability application if you can prove your condition is medically equivalent to a listed impairment. Put another way, the SSA recognizes that you are just as disabled as someone with a listed condition.

First time DUI in Georgia

Even a small amount of alcohol can affect decision making and response time, making drinking and driving dangerous for the driver, any passengers and other motorists. In Georgia, driving under the influence carries steep penalties, even for a first offense.

How patients can help avoid medical mistakes

When people go to a Georgia hospital or doctor's office, they usually do not expect to experience a medical error. However, mistakes can happen in any part of the health care system and can involve a wide range of issues, from surgical errors to incorrect prescriptions to misdiagnoses. In fact, one out of every seven hospital patients with Medicare experience a medical error of some kind. These mistakes can vary widely in their level of severity, but they can have serious repercussions to patients.

Drivers' lack of self-awareness regarding cellphone use

Many Georgia drivers find themselves using their cellphones while driving. The reason for this, according to a study, is because drivers lack self-awareness of the risks posed by the use of mobile devices while on the road; many drivers minimize the possible consequences to themselves and others on the road in general.
