DuPage County car accident attorney, teen car accident, graduated licenses, car accident claim, teen driversDo graduated licenses help to reduce teen car accident deaths in DuPage County and throughout the state of Illinois? According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, since 2007—shortly before the state instituted its graduated license program—rates of teen car crash deaths have declined by more than 50 percent. That data comes from the Illinois Secretary of State office, and experts cite the graduated license program as the reason for fewer traffic fatalities involving teen drivers in the state.

DuPage County car accident lawyer, traffic safety, car crashes, pedestrian injury, personal injury claimAre runners in DuPage County at higher risk of injury in a car crash than pedestrians who are walking leisurely or simply headed to work on foot? According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, the laws surrounding where a runner should be on the road can make jogging a complicated form of exercise, and it may place runners at greater risk of getting hurt in a collision with a motor vehicle.

That is a question posed by the recent article for situations in which two runners are on the road, jogging in opposite directions.

Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) releases a report concerning car accident statistics and fatalities on roads throughout the country. In 2016, fatal motor vehicle crashes rose again, just as they did between 2014 and 2015, according to the report.
