Ten Ways to Improve Road Safety in Lilburn
By Margot Ashley, President, SafetySmart Lilburn
In recent weeks, it has become apparent that traffic rules need to be reviewed. Traffic laws are for everyone’s safety, but it seems many have concluded they are guidelines. In 2014 Lilburn Police issued 6,936 citations for various traffic situations.
Common courtesy, such as yielding to allow a car to change lanes, seems to have gone out the window. A novice takes his (or her) life into his hands when getting on the roads. However, here are a few tips to improve the chances of surviving the drive.
- OBEY SPEED LAWS
In 2014, Lilburn Police issued 2,572 citations for speeding within Lilburn City Limits. The Police Department (LPD) has a very lenient measure for determining speeding, so these drivers must have been flying.
- In some instances, even the posted speed limit is too fast; this would include heavy rain, snow or ice, accidents or other situations requiring drivers to slow down
i. Resource for driving in hazardous conditions: http://www.dmv.org/how-to-guides/hazardous-conditions.php
- On the other hand, driving too slowly can impede traffic flow and lead to accidents. Observe signage for safe speeds.
- RENEW CAR TAGS YEARLY
This was the second highest number of citations (749) for LPD. The steps for car tag renewal have been streamlined, allowing for mailing in certifications but ensure that the car is safe to drive on the road.
- ALLOW ENOUGH SPACE BETWEEN VEHICLES, ALLOWING 3-5 SECONDS FOR STOPPING
In 2014, LPD gave 383 citations for following too close—often the result of an accident.
- EVERY CHILD UNDER 8 years old MUST BE IN CAR SEAT/RESTRAINT APPROPRIATE TO SIZE
…and in the back seat of the car. Children over 8 years must wear a seat belt even in the front seat. Any child over 4’9” may use a seat belt instead of a booster seat. LPD cited 271 drivers for improper car seat restraints for children last year. LPD offers free car seat installation inspections on Thursday afternoon from 1-4 PM.
- MOVE OVER LAW
Red, Yellow, Blue, Orange or White flashing lights anywhere on the road indicate the need to slow down and move away from the incident by one lane, if possible. This includes Hero Units and Tow Trucks, as well as police, fire and ambulance. If traffic is so heavy that you can’t move over, slow down enough to be prepared to stop. Fines for violation of this law are very high, to protect our first responders from injury.
- TURN ON HEADLIGHTS WHEN WIPERS ARE ON
Vehicles are much less visible when it is raining or when the windshield is smeared with rain. Headlights increase visibility of vehicles as well as lighting the way. The number of grey or black cars without headlights on in the rain is increasing the chances of accidents during rainy/foggy weather.
- TURN ON HEADLIGHTS AT DAWN AND DUSK (NOT PARKING LIGHTS)
As with rain, dawn and dusk are times when visibility is diminished and necessitate lighting for more visibility by other cars. Young eyes may be able to see easily, but older drivers may not see as well, causing rear- end or head-on collisions. The law states headlights should be turned on 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise.
- USE TURN SIGNALS
Turn signals to change lanes, turn a corner or turn into a shopping area alert other drivers of your intentions. The law used to say to put on signals 50 feet before turning; but now says in “enough time” for oncoming and following vehicles to be alerted. Some drivers put on their signal while changing lanes. This does not give surrounding drivers time to react, slow down or move out of the lane.
- Left Turn: Yield to Bicyclists, oncoming traffic and pedestrians
- YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALKS In recent weeks, several pedestrians have been struck in roadways, several with fatal results. For safety, pedestrians should face oncoming traffic and walk well off the roadway.
- DO NOT CHANGE LANES IN AN INTERSECTION
Seemingly self-explanatory, but this violation can be seen regularly when traffic is heavy.
- ALL DRIVERS ARE BANNED FROM TEXTING WHILE DRIVING
This includes while stopped at traffic lights as well as while traveling in the roadway.
If everyone commits to these ten rules, the streets of Lilburn and Gwinnett County will be safer for everyone.
