How does speeding affect drivers?

Speeding is something many people do on Illinois roadways. While it may not be considered a big deal, it is a crime. Posted speed limits have been determined based upon different factors and are set for a reason. The bottom line is to keep people safe, both those in the vehicles and those outside them. When you speed, you are putting everyone's life at risk.

Illinois roads continue to be dangerous for motorcycles

Once the weather warms up, motorcyclists begin hitting the roads in Illinois. After a long winter, they enjoy being able to cruise freely under the warm sun. For drivers, this means being more vigilant and watching out for them. It also means an uptick in accidents. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident, the chances are fairly high that seriously injuries will occur.

What are the most recent fatal car accident statistics?

You likely know that driving can be dangerous. There are accidents every day on Illinois roadways. Unfortunately, some of these are fatal. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, every traffic accident that involves a fatality must be reported to law enforcement.  This not only assures the accident scene is managed and victims are properly cared for but it also allows the DOT to collect and analyze crash data to keep you informed and to help prevent future accidents. Knowledge can be power when it comes to vehicle accidents because it enables authorities to spot problem areas and can help you be more aware of the risks you face on the roadways.

Pedestrian deaths rise significantly in 2016

Pedestrian deaths rose across the nation, and Illinois was no exception. In fact, according to NPR, pedestrian fatalities spiked 11 percent in the past year, which is the largest year-over-year increase ever. Traffic fatalities rose in the past year as well, a 6 percent jump, which means that while more crashes have become deadly, pedestrian deaths have grown faster than expected.
