December 2017 Archives

Highlighting the issue of drunk driving

A person is killed once every 50 minutes on an Illinois roadway or elsewhere in America because of an impaired driver. In an effort to raise awareness of the dangers of impaired driving, December has been named National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. The goal is to recognize that impaired driving is not a smart option and that people can choose not to do so.

Illusory superiority can lead to overconfident drivers

Most people think that they are great drivers. These drivers think that they always make the right decisions and every other driver is generally in the wrong. The chances are good that you think that, too. In 2013, a study emerged that indicated the average driver considers themselves in the 70th percentile of drivers based on ability. Since this is mathematically impossible, as the average driver should actually fall in the 50th percentile, then we know that something is occurring that is causing drivers to have a skewed perception.

Electronic logging could cut down on fatigued truck driving

Illinois motorists may be concerned about sharing the roadways with large trucks and buses. These massive vehicles carry specific safety risks, not only for themselves but also for others on the road. The inherent danger of large semi-trucks can be accentuated when truck drivers are fatigued or overworked.

Americans think texting more dangerous than marijuana on roads

Those in Illinois and elsewhere around the country probably are aware that it is dangerous and illegal to drive while under the effect of marijuana. However, a new poll shows that most Americans believe that driving while high is less dangerous than texting while driving.
