In August 2021, a Fulton County Superior Court jury awarded a woman $250,000 for her injuries while riding a Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) bus on Peachtree Street in Atlanta. The injuries occurred when the bus driver came to a sudden stop and the woman alleged that the bus driver negligently tailgated and failed to maintain an appropriate lookout and safely operate the vehicle.
