Illinois car accidents, DuPage County car accident lawyer, motor vehicle collision, driver negligence, drowsy drivingIf you are planning a family road trip this summer that takes you away from DuPage County, it is important to consider the risks of a serious car accident while you are on the road. No one plans for a devastating motor vehicle collision, but they happen more often than most of us assume, and they frequently occur because of another driver’s negligence.

While negligence can take many forms, one of the more frequent reasons for crashes during extended road trips is drowsy driving. It is more difficult for a driver to stay alert—and to stay awake—behind the wheel after hours on the road without a break. According to a recent article in the Claims Journal, auto accidents caused by drowsy driving are more likely to occur farther away from rest stops.

DuPage County car accident lawyer, auto accidents, car accident injuries, car accident claims, car accident caseAccording to an article in Bloomberg Technology, a fatal autonomous vehicle collision in Temple, Arizona led Uber Technologies to suspend further testing of its self-driving cars in Arizona, as well as in a number of other cities where autonomous vehicle technology testing had been approved. Other companies, including Toyota Motor Corp., have done the same, citing the emotional toll on the safety drivers who sit behind the wheel. Still, a number of other companies continued to test self-driving cars in the days after the collision, and many cities insisted that the testing phase of autonomous vehicles is perfectly safe.

If you live in DuPage County and regularly drive in and around Chicagoland, should you be concerned about the risk of serious injury from a collision with a self-driving car that is undergoing testing?

DuPage County car accident lawyer, car accident claims, car accident injuries, car crashes, driver negligenceWhen considering the reasons why teen drivers are more likely to be involved in car accidents in DuPage County than older drivers, one may assume that teens do not have the same skills as more experienced drivers. However, according to a recent study conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles and reported by CBS News, many teens performed better than older motorists, even when traversing some of the worst roads in the state. In other words, teens may have more technical driving skills than most of us. Why, then, do teen drivers have a higher rate of serious and fatal collisions?

Teens Have Higher Skill Ratings Than Older Drivers

The study looked at 100 novice drivers who were preparing for their driver’s license test. The drivers were not necessarily teens, but were simply inexperienced drivers who were just learning to drive. Generally speaking, the researchers determined that teen drivers tend to have a higher skill rating than even slightly older drivers, and that is true for both male and female drivers. While female teen drivers have less confidence in their driving skills than male teen drivers, the study showed no difference in skill set among male and female drivers. Where the difference comes in is age. To reiterate, teens tend to have better driving skills than older drivers.

DuPage County motor vehicle accident lawyer, promote safe driving, car accident, driver negligence, truck accidentsCar 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.

textalyzer, texting while driving, DuPage County car accident lawyer, distracted driving, car crashesA new form of technology known as the “textalyzer” has been developed to help law enforcement officials catch individuals who are illegally texting while driving. This is particularly significant news for residents of DuPage County who regularly commute into Chicago.

According to a recent report from ABC News 7, “Chicago may become the first city in the U.S. to arm its police officers with devices that will tell them immediately if motorists were texting when they got into a traffic accident.” Indeed, members of the Chicago Police Department may soon begin using textalyzers to determine whether a driver violated Illinois’s texting-while-driving law, which prohibits the use of electronic devices for texting if you are behind the wheel.

What is the textalyzer and how does it work? Can such a device actually deter drivers from texting in order to prevent motor vehicle accidents? And is such a device lawful?
