Car crashes and truck accidents occur more often than they need to in DuPage County and on the highways running throughout the Chicago suburbs. And even when accidents cannot be prevented entirely, there are many ways that the severity of those collisions and the resulting injuries could be lessened.
However, according to a recent article in the Illinois News Network, there is not a lot of public support for making changes to the state’s safe driving laws. The Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety recently released a 2018 report on safe driving laws, but Illinois residents largely do not want to see any of these changes implemented.
Recommendations for Safe Driving Laws in Illinois
When traveling on roadways in any part of the country there is always a risk of being involved in a car accident. However, it can also be said that certain behaviors and conditions can significantly increase a driver’s risk of being involved in a collision, while still others can reduce such a risk. Many agencies and organizations focus on traffic safety and promote safe driving. According to a recently published news article, a transportation advocacy group in the state of Illinois ranked the most dangerous intersections in the Chicago area.
The Active Transportation Alliance made a list of the 20 most dangerous intersections in the Chicago metro area recently. The group promotes bicycling as well as other modes of alternative transportation in the Chicago area. In order to rank the intersections included in the list, the Alliance analyzed crash data, staff feedback, and public input in order to come up with the results.
