Illinois officials seek lower speed limit to protect residents

Residents of Chicago, Illinois, want to stay safe. This means avoiding motor vehicle accidents.

A Chicago police SUV was involved in an accident that took the life of a 66-year-old man. According to reports from witnesses in the ongoing investigation, the vehicle was driving at about 80 miles per hour when it went through a stop sign and hit the car the man was in, killing him.

The glare from the sun can blind you behind the wheel, leading to an accident. For example, one driver was coming up over a hill, and the sun hit him in the eyes as he topped that hill. On the road in front of him, in a crosswalk, was a woman who was crossing the street with her dog. Tragically, he struck the woman, saying after the fact that he'd not been able to see her at all.
