Georgia Tech’s Drive Atlanta Study
More than 1,500 people a year die in crashes in Georgia, and more than 135,000 are injured. The concern is greatest perhaps in metro Atlanta counties, which exceed the national average crash rate of 5 percent per year among all registered vehicles. In fact, the crash rate is almost 10 percent in Fulton County, the heart of the metro area. Previous studies have shown that Atlantans drive harder, faster and longer than motorists in four other representative U.S. cities, including Los Angeles.
So, for the past three years, Georgia Tech has had a study to investigate speed, driver behavior, travel patterns, etc. See article
