A friend of mine lost her brother, Andy, when a motorist attempted to turn left in front of him. Andy was a motorcyclist. He died on impact. The driver failed to yield and was eventually cited. Unbelievably, the woman who killed him may serve one year (the max) and pay a $1,000 fine. That’s it in Georgia. Andy’s family has started a Change.Org petition for the laws to change in Georgia, and you can help!
I rarely post these types of items; however, this is different. Andy was barely 20 years old. He had his entire life in front of him. Further, some people attempted to blame him all because he was on a motorcycle. According to statistics, people driving cars are more likely to cause an accident when a motorcycle is involved. Yep. You read that correctly.
Anyone, even those who do not reside in Georgia or those not registered to vote, may sign the petition.
