DuPage County car accident attorney, bicyclists, bicycle accident, vehicle bicycle crash,  traffic collisionsAlthough the temperatures in DuPage County are not currently conducive to riding a bicycle for everyday transportation to and from work, or to your neighborhood shopping market, a new study published in Accident Analysis & Prevention suggests that getting more cyclists on the roads could help to reduce the rate of overall traffic collisions among motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. It may be difficult to consider getting out on a bicycle in the winter months, especially in Illinois, but the study provides helpful information to consider as we slowly look ahead to warmer months and as we consider ways of reducing motor vehicle crashes in the New Year.

Bicycling Yourself Can Lead You to Take More Care Behind the Wheel

How can getting more bicyclists out on the roads in DuPage County and across the country reduce the total rate of motor vehicle collisions with bicyclists?

A 14 year old boy’s life was forever changed on a fateful day in February of 2012. Hunter Himes was on his bike traveling home from a friend’s house when he was hit by a car near Beller Drive and Lemont Road in Darien. The car trapped him underneath and made him sustain injuries that caused him to be in critical condition and in a coma. He was airlifted to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he made a partial recovery from his injuries; to this day Hunter is unable to walk or talk.

The driver who caused the car accident was Timothy J. Hagan, a 40 year old man from the 3000 block of Drover Lane in Darien. He was taking a right-hand turn onto Lemont Road, but he did not see Hunter approaching the crosswalk. Hagan was ticketed for not yielding to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

Nothing has helped cushion the blow that Hunter’s parents have felt, but when they found out that the max penalty for failing to yield to a pedestrian is only a $500 fine, they were flabbergasted. “Nothing is going to fill the void,” Hunter’s mother Terra Ihde said. “No amount of money, no jail time will replace what we lost, but it’s just another dagger in the back.” Now the parents have been crusading to stop distracted driving. Terra hopes that someday the penalties for hitting a pedestrian will match the penalties for hitting a road construction worker, nearly 14 years in prison and fines up to $10,000.
