Dangerous New “Game” on Highways – A-1 Driving School

Dangerous New “Game” on Highways

Officers have been made aware of several recent incidents of people riding on the outside of moving semi-trucks on local highways.

The Atlanta Police Department explains that these acts put not only the “stowaway” clinging to the massive truck at risk but the drivers behind and next to the violated truck, in danger.

The department is asking people who see these incidents to put their cameras down and use their phones to call 911 instead.

APD says in a statement on social media, “The safety of our citizens is our number one priority. We take these incidents seriously, and we want to send a strong message to those that continue to put Atlanta on the map or on the ‘Gram’ for things that don’t serve our greater good, make us better, or uplift our city.”

Motor collisions continue to injure and claim the lives of many people every year.

It is recommended that drivers practice defensive driving at all times to avoid collisions!

  • Drivers are advised to not drive too closely behind other cars so that they can have more time to maneuver in case those vehicles abruptly come to a stop.
  • Drivers should also activate their car signals whenever they decide to change lanes, turn a certain direction, speed up, or slow down.
  • Car owners must also carry out regular and proper maintenance of their vehicles.

The same and more safe driving practices that are taught in A-1’s Defensive Driving Class can apply to be a safe driver in a car and on a motorcycle.

There is a lot of very useful and informative information in the class and it will apply whether you have been driving for years or you are a brand new driver!

Each student will receive a Certificate of Completion!

For more information about class schedules call (770)962-9555 or more details can be found on A-1’s official website www.a1drivingschools.com.
