"Dooring" Bicycle Accidents Now Being Recorded in Illinois

Effective this past Monday, Illinois is now tracking deadly "dooring" accidents occurring across the state. "Dooring" accidents, or getting "doored," are terms that cyclists coined for bicycle accidents occurring when a parked motorist carelessly opens their car door into the bike lane, making contact with the cyclist or the bicycle itself. Such accidents are common in crowded, bike-heavy metros such as Chicago.

Recent Pedestrian Accidents Plaguing the Chicago Area

It doesn't take much for a pedestrian's life to be threatened by a reckless motorist. In a steel-v-bone battle, the pedestrian faces little chance of walking away from a collision. A recent string of car-v-pedestrian accidents has left several dead and many others injured in Chicago. One such tragic accident occurred recently in the Belmont Area.

After Mechanic Shop Visit, Check your Car's Hood Latch!

A recently published letter in the Chicago Sun-Times described the terrifying experience of a local commuter.

Since the repair estimates were substantial, the motorist decided to leave the shop with an estimate and think about it.

Chances of Dying from Drunk Driver up 150 Percent on New Year's

Roughly 80 people die each year from drunk driver car accidents on New Year's Day, as reported by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. That figure illustrates a 150 percent increase in the chances of one dying in an alcohol-related crash when comparing it to an average day this time of year.

Thanksgiving is Biggest Holiday for Drunk Driving

As you spend time with friends and family this Thanksgiving, you should take special care during your travels. While many believe that New Years' Eve, St. Patrick's Day or the Super Bowl present the greatest threat from drunk drivers, it is typically "Turkey Day" that takes the infamous spot each year.

Recent Commercial-Vehicle Crashes Victimize Chicago

A string of recent truck crashes have plagued the Chicago area. A dump-truck crash in Bartlett caused injuries to eight people. An Elk Grove Village man driving the dump truck rear-ended two vehicles in front of him. He then crossed into oncoming traffic, striking a pickup truck and causing it to careen into another vehicle. Fortunately, the five-vehicle crash didn't claim any lives. The police charged the dump-truck driver for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
