Whiplash: What you need to know

Imagine you are driving home from work or heading out to the grocery in your car. It seems like a typical, routine trip when you stop at an intersection and wait for the light to turn green. Suddenly, you see a flash in your rear-view mirror and before you realize what is happening, you are rear-ended and your body is violently thrown forward and then slammed back.

Beware of dangerous drivers this holiday weekend

If you are like many people across Springfield, you already have your holiday weekend planned. The Fourth of July is a very popular time to get outside, enjoy barbecues, fireworks and time with family and friends. Often, these gatherings involve drinking alcohol, which could put people in serious danger.

When age can put Illinois drivers in danger

There are many residents in Springfield who know someone who may not be a safe driver. Some of these people may be new to driving, but others may have decades of experience behind the wheel. It is those in the latter category that may have the most trouble coming to terms with the fact that they are no longer able to operate a motor vehicle safely.

Springfield drivers: Avoid distraction, focus on driving

Every driver in Illinois should know that they are expected to drive safely. We know that operating a motor vehicle is a responsibility and requires skill and concentration because of how much damage that can be caused by dangerous or negligent behavior. 

Peoria car accident leaves Carlinville teen dead

Icy road conditions are not uncommon in Sangamon County at this of the year. Drivers are encouraged to slow down so as to avoid losing control of their vehicles. Unfortunately, there usually always someone who's either running late, who gets distracted, or who just thinks he or she can drive fast that ignores these warnings and ends up in a car accident. Sadly, these drivers aren't the only ones at risk when these accidents happen. They also place any passengers traveling in their vehicles with them in danger.

Most, if not all kids in Springfield look forward with great anticipation to that magical day when they earn their driver's license. Being able to drive represents a degree of freedom that they long for, and it serves notice to the world that they're ready to step into adulthood. Some so look forward to this privilege that they're unable to wait until 16. Yet sadly, a quick spin behind the wheel before one reaches the legal driving age can often result in trouble that can jeopardize his or her chances of enjoying driving or any other activity in the future.

State police looking into cause of fatal Litchfield car accident

Not all of the vehicles on Springfield's roads are created equal. It's often because of this that some walk away from car accidents involving multiple vehicles without a scratch on them, while others in the same accident never walk again. Each car, truck, and SUV faces unique challenges on the road because of its size and design. Drivers should familiarize themselves with the on-road characteristics of their vehicles. Failure to do so may end in tragedy.

Car accidents in Springfield are all too common on today's roads. Even as vehicle safety standards have improved and new features have been created to help people try and avoid accidents, they still occur. Unfortunately, there's nothing that vehicle engineers can do to remove human error from the equation, and more often than not, that's usually what causes most car collisions. The number of ways that a driver can make a mistake behind the wheel that leads to an accident is endless, ranging from driving while impaired to simple carelessness or lack of attention.
