Traffic Signals Help Prevent Traffic Accidents
The purpose of traffic signals is to help prevent collisions and make it easier to navigate intersections and other areas where you may encounter other traffic. When a driver carelessly or purposely disobeys a traffic signal, it creates a very significant risk for an accident.
Under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) § 40-6-20, the law requires all drivers to obey red lights and other signals from traffic control devices, with few exceptions that rarely apply. If another driver ran a red light or otherwise failed to obey a traffic signal, they are likely liable in your car accident case, especially if you obeyed the signal.
The only exceptions for O.C.G.A. § 40-6-20 are:
- When there is a police officer on scene who is directing traffic and their directions go against the traffic signal; or
- When the vehicle is an authorized emergency response vehicle with the appropriate lights and siren and is responding to an emergency.
To prove negligence in a traffic accident, we have to show that the driver had a certain responsibility and failed to uphold that responsibility. In this type of case, that responsibility is to follow O.C.G.A. § 40-6-20 and obey the traffic signal. Failure to do so may cause an accident, and you could suffer injuries and other losses just as occurred following your Roswell, GA, collision.
