There have been some efforts in the state of Georgia that changed the motorcycle laws. In fact, those efforts were started by State Senator Joey Brush who, unfortunately, passed away in a motorcycle accident. One of the changes that he wanted to make was to treat a stoplight really as a stop sign so that motorcyclists would not have to wait for the red light to turn green before going through the intersection.
How are Georgia’s motorcycle accidents compared to the nation?
In Georgia, the number of motorcycle-related deaths has actually decreased, however nationally, the number is on the rise.
