As I drove home from work one day last week, there was sign that said “956 Fatalities on Georgia Roads this year.” I thought that imagesseemed quite high, but after a little investigation I found that on average we lose close to 1500 people each year driving on Georgia roads.

Unlike a terminal illness that for the most part can’t be avoided, a car accident can be totally avoided if you know the secrets.
