The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety provides a free online tool that is designed to inform drivers in Illinois and other states about the effect medication can have on their driving ability. Those with medical conditions are at increased risk of causing a car accident risk for drivers. In many cases, it is the medication that causes the danger. Some people develop chronic conditions as they age, and many fail to consider how that impact their driving.
Losing a child in a road accident is naturally an extremely traumatic experience for the surviving family members. The same distress is often experienced by the person whose apparent negligence caused the fatality. This was reportedly the case when a 13-year-old Illinois boy was killed in a bicycle accident on a recent Friday afternoon.
The Illinois State Police is investigating a crash that occurred on a recent Thursday morning. This car accident was one of many in which one driver crossed into the path of oncoming traffic. It is never easy to determine why drivers cross the center line, and in most cases, head-on collisions are caused that often result in serious injuries or worse.
There are multiple reasons for drivers to lose control of their vehicles. In many cases, it is caused by distractions. However, when a car goes off the road, drivers instinctively try to steer their vehicles back on to the pavement. This often causes over-correction that can have devastating consequences. A recent fatal motorcycle accident is believed to have been caused by such circumstances.
