Understanding how to stay safe while traveling in adverse weather

With cooler climates settling in, the concept of having to travel along Illinois roads during adverse weather conditions is a likelihood you might soon encounter. While you may feel it best to avoid hitting the open road during icy or snowy conditions, such a preference might not always be a possibility.

11 injured when car rear-ends hayride

Hayrides are very popular in the fall all over the Midwest, but one unfortunately turned tragic in Illinois when a vehicle rear-ended the hayride on the highway. A farm vehicle was pulling the trailer, which was full of passengers. Both the car and the trailer flipped and overturned during the wreck.

Brake failure a common factor in truck crashes

These days, tractor-trailer trucks traveling across Illinois and other parts of the nation substantially outweigh standard passenger vehicles, making it critically important that these oversize vehicles have high-functioning braking systems. At Kerley & Talken PC, we recognize that navigating commercial trucks downhill safely requires not only functioning brakes, but also well-trained truck drivers who understand that they cannot rely on those brakes, exclusively, to see the trucks safely downhill.

Sullivan County bus accident takes life of student

It is always tragic when a child is killed in a motor vehicle accident. When Illinois parents send their children to school in buses, they expect these vehicles to be safe enough to protect their children in a collision. Unfortunately, as a recent incident illustrated, not all accidents involving school buses are minor.

Road rage accidents are a growing epidemic

Driving can be stressful, and not just because you have to focus on things like merging onto the interstate or following the speed limit. It is becoming more and more likely that you will encounter an angry driver while on your morning commute or running errands around town. It is these angry drivers who are causing an increase in road rage accidents.
