Traffic deaths threaten to go the wrong way
Illinois’ traffic death toll is on track to rise to the highest level in 4 years. Motorists must redouble their commitment to safe driving.
State highway traffic fatalities have trended downward in recent years. In fact, in 2009, the traffic death toll dipped below 1,000 for the first time since 1921.
Unless motorists exercise more care behind the wheel, however, that trend may reverse itself.
As of Wednesday, 921 people had lost their lives on Illinois roadways so far this year, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
