The Eichholz Law Firm Warns Residents about Dangerous Intersection after Student is Hit by a Truck
Parents and residents are speaking out about the intersection at Whitemarsh Island Road and Mapmaker Lane after a local student was hit by a pick-up truck.
Residents are worried as they often see drivers speeding down the road and using it as a shortcut between Johnny Mercer Avenue and Highway 80. Some are also using the road as a drop-off and pick-up zone for their children. There are three schools in the area and hundreds of students walk to and from their homes each day although there are no sidewalks available.
Locals are hoping that the school board will do something to control the situation such as installing speed bumps or barring parents from dropping their children off at the intersection. Until then, parents should try to drop their children off at a safer location and teach them the importance of looking both ways before crossing the road.
Bad roads are a common cause of motor vehicle accidents and Chatham County is a high risk accident area according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. Additional statistics show that on average 40 pedestrians were injured in accidents each week throughout the state between 2000 and 2006.
If you or a loved one has been injured on a dangerous road by a reckless driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. An experienced Savannah car accident attorney can help you learn more about what your legal rights are.
