How dangerous is driving during the holidays?

Is it really more dangerous to drive during the holidays in Illinois? For the most part, you probably would not notice a difference from one day to the next on wintry roads in the Chicago area. You still see people going to and from work, clogged highways and occasional collisions.

You probably would not notice a major uptick in accidents because of one simple fact: The winter holidays are not the most dangerous times of year in the area for motorists. Even Labor Day, often the deadliest holiday, would not be likely to seem excessively dangerous. That appearance of safety is the exact reason you should be careful every time you head out on the road. 

Illinois, according to Patch, has some of the least deadly roads in the country, ranking 41 out of 50 for traffic fatality rates. Even so, it would only take a moment for a car crash to lead to injury or death for yourself or someone you care about. 

Accidents are still among the top leading causes of death in the USA, with auto collisions accounting for a significant percent. Slips and falls also claim many lives every year. You could potentially prevent many of these by driving safely and maintaining your property, but unfortunately not everyone has the same level of diligence. 

Your safety matters. However, another party could injure you or someone you love by neglecting this principle — and it could all happen in an instant. How you take action after the event could determine your entire future. This is not legal advice. It is only intended to inform.
