5 Driving Safety Tips to Stay Protected On the Road in Illinois

1. Drive With A "Defensive" Approach

2. Don't Drive If You Are Overtired Or Otherwise Impaired

  • If you are taking a long road trip, make sure you are well rested.
  • Build scheduled stops, for food or rest breaks, into your driving schedule.
  • It goes without saying, but if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, don't get behind the wheel.

3. Remind Your Passengers About Car Safety

  • If you are driving several passengers, it is important that they are not a distraction to you. Cranking the music up loud, singing, or talking loudly can all be distractions to the driver. Kindly ask your passengers to refrain from doing anything distracting before you start your drive.

4. Don't Speed

  • If the speed limit is 25mph, it is so for a reason. When you see a low speed zone, it is because it is a highly populated area, often with parks or schools. To keep pedestrians safe, speed limits are lowered to increase driver reaction times. The same rule of thumb should apply even when speed limits are high.

5. Wear A Seatbelt

  • Not only should the driver wear a seatbelt, but it is important for all passengers to wear one as well. In an accident, the momentum can jostle occupants around making them dangers to themselves and all others in the car.

If you were the victim of a car accident, it is important to consult with an expeirenced attorney to determine your rights. Rosenberg, Eisenberg & Associates, LLC offers a free consultation for any victim of a car accident.
