Most Dangerous Intersections For Motorcycles

Our Atlanta attorneys frequently litigate motorcycle accident cases. Our experience over many years shows that in almost all cases the motorcyclist was not at fault.
Recently, the Atlanta media reported a case in which a young man was fatally injured in the Little Five Points district when the scooter he was driving was hit from behind by a vehicle.
Allstate insurance company has conducted a study of the most dangerous intersections in Atlanta for motorcycle riders.
The data indicates that the intersection of 14th Street and Peachtree Street is the most dangerous intersection for motorcyclists in Fulton County.
Seven of 18 fatal motorcycle crashes — 39 percent — in Fulton County in 2009 occurred at that intersection. The Georgia Department of Transportation statistics show that there were 337 motorcycle crashes in Fulton County in 2009.
The other intersections in Fulton and Dekalb that had multiple motorcycle crashes in 2009 were:
— Barge Road and Campbelltown Roads
— Camp Creek Parkway and Welcome All Road
— 10th St. and Piedmont Avenue
— Bolton Road and Marietta Road
— Buford Highway and Peachtree Street
— Delmar Lane and Delmoor Court
— Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Eugenia Avenue
In an effort to encourage safety for motorcycle and car drivers, Allstate is installing yellow diamond-shaped caution signs with the word “LOOK” and a silhouette of a motorcycle.
Other interesting facts revealed in the Allstate study are:
— Most of the motorcycle crashes occurred in August.
— Most occurred on a Saturday.
— Most occurred between 5 and 7 p.m.
