Wrong way collisions kill and are a problem on busy highways in Georgia. Statistics are hard to identify. In Washington, for example, on average, 350 people each year are killed when a driver is going the wrong way (based on data collected in 2002). http://tiny.cc/e7otjw According to an archived publication of the U.S. Department of Transportation, driving the wrong way on an interstate or highway has been a persistent safety problem since the interstate highway system was founded in the late 1950’s. There does not appear to be a national level program designed to combat wrong way drivers. Individual states such as Washington have focused on better signage and highway design.
