3 types of distracted driving

When most of us hear the term "distracted driving," the first image that comes to mind is of a careless person behind the wheel with a cellphone is hand. Certainly, this is the case many times and too common of a trend among drivers. However, there are more ways in which drivers can be distracted, and they all have the potential to cause an accident.

Distracted drivers need to get focused

Like most big cities, Chicago, Illinois, has an enormous number of vehicles on the roads. This, of course, correlates with a substantial number of motor vehicle accidents each year. While current inclement weather is making driving more dangerous, there is something else that is making driving dangerous too, and that is distracted driving.

Can I research the safety of a tour bus company?

A tour bus can hold dozens of passengers, and it's an efficient way to get from points A to B, but what if the tour bus isn't safe? What happens if the tour bus has problems with its brakes, steering or has other safety issues? A poorly maintained tour bus can end in a disastrous accident for the passengers riding inside it -- resulting in catastrophic injuries and even death. So, before you choose a tour bus company for your next group outing, be sure to investigate the safety of the company.

Be careful on roads this fall

Many people in Chicago, Illinois, are eagerly preparing for Thanksgiving, with visions of butter-drenched baked potatoes, homemade gravy, perfectly seasoned stuffing and fresh corn along with family reunions. For many, this will involve extra travel. For that reason, it is critical to take extra care to avoid motor vehicle accidents, because of the sheer volume of vehicles that will be on the road and because drivers who are focused on the turkey they intend to cook or their ongoing dispute with their Aunt Sally may not be focused on traffic safety.

Tragic crash shows deadly danger of DUIs

On the busy roads of Chicago, Illinois, there are many vehicles. Correspondingly, there are many motor vehicle accidents every year. Often those have tragic consequences such as a recent one that resulted in a driver being arrested, incarcerated and held on $500,000 bail.

Take extra care when driving around walking students

Throughout Chicago, Illinois, students from kindergarten to their last year of high school are returning to schools for yet another year, and that changes both foot and traffic patterns. Being aware of those patterns is an important way to avoid motor vehicle accidents.

Summer is a dangerous time for driving

Chicago, Illinois, has some of the busiest roads in the nation. In view of that, it is unsurprising that it has many motor vehicle accidents. Some people might presume that most of those accidents happen when winter comes, but the fact is that many happen in summer too.
