Rear-End Accidents During Atlanta Rush Hour Traffic

The capital of the South is commonly ranked as the nation’s top cities with traffic. Cited as the eight worst American city for traffic by The Weather Channel, Atlanta’s highways are congested daily. I-285, I-85, I-75, I-20, and Georgia 400 are popular roadways for those traveling to work, traveling to school, traveling to the airport, etc.

Unfortunately, more congestion and traffic can cause more Atlanta traffic accidents. Rear-end accidents are more common during traffic rush hours than any other time of the day.

The two most common ways that rear-end accidents happen are a car following too closely or a driver is distracted. In a typical rear-end collision, the driver who hits the vehicle in front is held liable and at fault for the accident.

There are many factors that can contribute to a rear-end accident:

  • Following too closely (tailgating)
  • Drastic changes in speed that make it difficult to stop in time
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Inclement weather that limits visibility and alters the road conditions
  • Brake malfunctions or tire problems
