If you drive in Cobb County, you may have noticed a new law in effect the last time you got pulled over. Cobb County has decided to crack down on slow drivers that violate the state’s new slowpoke law. The law took effect last summer. 200 people have been charged with driving too slow since then. This is almost two-thirds of the volume of tickets handed out by troopers for the entire state.
The law slaps drivers with a fine if they drive too slowly in the passing lane. The police say that many collisions occur because two drivers cannot negotiate speeds correctly. Driving too slow or too fast can cause an accident. Sometimes going slow is not the right choice. If a driver cannot predict your speed, you open the risk for an accidents with injuries. If you’ve been injured in a crash because someone was going too slowly, don’t think you don’t have a case. Contact a personal injury attorney first.
