DuPage County auto accident lawyer, car crashes, traffic crash risk, traffic safety, distracted drivingWhether you are driving in DuPage County or in downtown Chicago, you may have noticed speed cameras or red light cameras designed to prevent aggressive driving accidents. One of the aims behind traffic photo enforcement systems, according to the DuPage County Community Resource Information System, is to prevent car accidents caused by aggressive drivers. Two of the most common forms of aggressive driving include speeding and running red lights. These behaviors routinely result in serious and fatal auto accidents.

Still, do speed and red light cameras actually act as a deterrent for aggressive drivers? According to a PubMed Health article, research suggests that speed and red light cameras do reduce the number of traffic crashes and personal injuries, and as such they are a worthwhile intervention.

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? The premise of the study is this: the more that drivers experience what it is like to ride a bicycle and to share the road with other motorists, the more likely those individuals will be to take particular care when they are behind the wheel.

auto accidents,DuPage County auto accident lawyer, traffic safety, car crashes, car accidentWhether you commute regularly from your home in DuPage County to your job in downtown Chicago, or if you only use your car for recreational purposes or for getting around your own neighborhood, car accidents can happen quickly and without warning. While there are many steps we all can take in order to prevent accidents from happening in the first place, drivers can additionally purchase vehicles that have well-designed safety features in order to both prevent crashes and limit injuries in the event that a collision does occur.

According to a recent article in The New York Times, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) newly released its list for “Top Safety Pick” and “Top Safety Pick Plus.” What should you learn about the vehicles that made the list in order to avoid a car accident and serious injuries?

avoiding car accidents, DuPage County car accident lawyer, car crashes, traffic collisions, car technologyAs a recent article in Slate highlights, the number of serious and deadly car accidents in the country has risen in the last decade despite the fact that automobiles are getting “smarter” and that technology has only continued to improve. Indeed, as the article notes, the 8 percent rise in motor vehicle crash fatalities in 2015 was the “largest in 50 years,” and by 2016 the number had risen again to more than 40,000 annual traffic fatalities. While technology within automobiles might not be able to prevent crashes in some circumstances, it can provide us with more information about the reasons that car accidents happen. That kind of knowledge may help DuPage County drivers to avoid serious and fatal crashes.

“Naturalistic Driving Studies” and the Role of Technology in Car Crash Knowledge

In 2008, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan sought to use different kinds of technology to determine the actual causes of car crashes by installing devices in thousands of vehicles to produce “naturalistic driving studies.” The study caught on with other researchers and commentators interested in getting to the root of the specific causes of auto accidents. To be clear, such studies “are now equipping cars with accelerometers, sonar, sensors that track river inputs, and lots of video cameras.” Drivers who participate in the study agree to do so, and to drive with vehicles equipped with the tools we just mentioned.

car accident injuries, motor vehicle collisions,  traffic collision, child fatalities, car seat problemsIf you have a young child who requires a car seat, do you know that you have installed the seat properly such that your child is less likely to sustain fatal injuries in a motor vehicle accident in Lombard? Most parents know  their young children need to use car seats in order to stay safe and to abide by the law. However, according to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, car seats are often improperly installed or parents use car seats that are not age-appropriate.

What does Illinois law say about car accident injury prevention and safety seats? And what can the recent article teach parents about promoting safety and preventing injuries in the event of a traffic collision?
