Safety tips every pedestrian should follow

Countless people walk to and from their destination, including to the bus stop and the train. Commuters on foot are more vulnerable to distracted drivers and potential safety threats. Pedestrians involved in an accident may easily find themselves struggling with unexpected medical costs, physical therapy, and lost wages from missed time at work to name a few.

Distracted driving dangers are growing

An Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study indicates that distracted driving is growing worse in Illinois and across the country. The research analyzed survey results from 2014 and 2018 to compare distracted driving concerns, especially following the significant public awareness campaigns and law enforcement efforts that have targeted this behavior. However, while the overall rate of distracted driving appeared to remain roughly steady over the four-year period, the types of distractions appeared to be more dangerous in the later study, posing a greater risk of severe car accidents.

Trucker may have caused fatal chain-reaction crash

Illinois residents may have heard about the deadly highway accident that occurred in Florida in early January 2019. It was a chain-reaction crash that claimed seven lives, and its cause may have been the driver of a commercial truck. Florida Highway Patrol made a preliminary accident report but will need three to four months to complete its investigation.
