Illinois secretary of state to focus on reducing truck accidents

Jesse White, secretary of state for Illinois, is currently completing his final term after more than 15 years serving our state. While he readily admits there is still a lot to do in his position, it seems some of his main concerns are Illinois road safety and reducing truck accidents in the state.

White spoke with The Southern Illinoisan recently, identifying the reinstatement of the Motor Vehicle Task Force as one of the many things he would like to accomplish before he leaves office. The secretary of state told the newspaper that there are still a lot of truck accidents involving private vehicles and that he would like to see a reduction in those accidents.

Other than the specific mention of wanting to reinstate the Motor Vehicle Task Force, the news story did not provide many specific examples of what White would like to accomplish during his final term. The article said White's office provides excellent customer service but then said there was "room to improve."

Reportedly, the secretary of state would also like to continue using technology but also offer unnamed services people need. It's hard to determine what that might have to do with truck accidents or road safety without more detail. The story concluded with the cryptic statement that White wants to make the roads of Illinois safer than ever and provide the best customer service in the history of Illinois, but again, it doesn't provide ideas for real solutions.

Despite the lack of viable solutions in the article, it's good to know people are publicly talking about commercial truck accidents in Illinois. Until someone can develop a real solution, people who have been injured due to a commercial truck accident can still turn to the law for a measure of satisfaction.
