Georgia State Patrol Troopers remind drivers and bike riders to be extra cautious on these busy and high speed roadways.
Sergeant Tommy Peeples said, “If possible, give them that whole right hand lane. And if they can't move over due to traffic conditions, slow down so that the driver or the motorist can react if the bicycle does come into your lane.”
No charges have been filed against the truck driver at this time as the State Patrol continues their investigation.
