Rules governing pedestrian vs. car accidents on highways

Generally, pedestrians here in Illinois and elsewhere are prohibited from walking along major interstate highways. This is due to the danger posed by the higher speed limits on interstates and the presence of large vehicles such as tractor-trailers. However, there are times when an individual has no other choice but to be on the side of a highway outside of a vehicle. Regardless of the reason, pedestrians on the roadways increase their risk of being seriously injured or killed in car accidents.  

Illinois DUI car accidents are not just about alcohol

When people hear the term "driving under the influence," the most common thing that comes to mind is driving after drinking alcohol. However, with the dramatic rise in prescription painkiller and heroin usage that is plaguing the country, drivers who are under the influence in many car accidents today have not even consumed a sip of alcohol. After a recent wreck, an Illinois man has been charged with driving under the influence of heroin.
