'Erin's Law' passed in Illinois, brings awareness to sexual abuse

Victims of sexual abuse or assault often suffer extensive levels of pain, humiliation and loneliness. They may feel as though they have no one to talk to about their tragic experience, and may end up trying to simply forget the physical and emotional injuries they have endured. However, efforts are being made right here in Illinois to educate people on this difficult subject so that victims of sexual abuse or assault have access to the help and resources they need.

Being prepared for winter driving in Illinois increases safety

It seems there's a lot to worry about on the road these days, with distracted driving such as texting and cellphone use recently added to the list of common causes of accidents. During the winter months, drivers in Illinois and throughout the areas of the U.S. that get snow and ice need to be even more careful -and prepared - on the road.

Illinois laws aimed at curbing distracted truck driving in effect

Preventing trucking accidents from ever happening is crucial for many reasons. Trucking accidents can cause serious property damage and put people in danger if hazardous cargo is spilled after a crash. The cleanup efforts that are required after a crash can be substantial and can be costly, both in terms of money and time. But the most important reason to prevent these truck accidents is because they can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to the victims who are involved.

How sleeping pills can contribute to car accidents in Illinois

Many people in Illinois understand that drunk driving, distracted driving and reckless driving are all dangerous behaviors. Almost from day one, drivers are taught not to speed, ignore traffic signals, drive while impaired or send a text while behind the wheel. All of these actions can significantly increase the likelihood that a person will cause a serious car accident.
