The Fourth of July weekend led to many crashes in the state of Georgia. Some reports indicate that eleven people were killed in the state over the course of the weekend.
Georgia has taken steps recently to reduce the number of deadly crashes that take place every year in the state. The hands-free law that the state instituted is an attempt to prevent drivers from being distracted while behind the wheel. As of 2018, officials were encouraged by a 2.3 percent reduction in crash-related deaths in the state. Some pointed to the lower number of fatalities as a positive sign that the law is helping make Georgia's roads safer.
Sadly, even with the drop in fatalities, 1,504 people were killed in traffic accidents in the state in 2018, and pedestrian deaths increased.
