Atlanta has the worst commute in the United States, according to an article by Forbes magazine. Almost every interstate in the metro-Atlanta area receives un-thinkable congestion every day during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Specifically, Interstate 20 has an unbearable amount of traffic congestion, with over 100,000 cars traveling into the city each day, resulting in thousands of traffic accidents each year.
The dangerous Atlanta commute
Making the morning and evening commute is a dangerous endeavor, even in the comfort of a luxury sedan with all of the safety perks. Most cars have built-in safety devices, such as air bags, which can save the life of the driver. However, not all vehicles have these extensive safety precautions. There are no airbags in a motorcycle.
Experiencing the thrill of riding a motorcycle is becoming more common, and drivers are seeing more motorcycles during their daily commutes. The difference between driving a motorcycle on the open road, and driving a motorcycle on I-20 can be quite substantial.
Motorcycle wrecks, more often than not, cause serious bodily injuries to the cyclist. There are many different causes of a motorcycle wreck. These include: drivers not seeing the motorcyclist, drivers turning in front of a motorcyclist, defects in the roadway, motorcycle defects, drunk drivers, weather, and a lack of safety equipment.
