Every day around Illinois, numerous drivers end up in car accidents. Some are minor while others are more severe, but many drivers could have avoided a collision had they not tried to multitask while behind the wheel.
Several studies have shown over the years that performing other activities while driving can increase a person's risk of being in an accident. Performing other activities can be everything from talking on the phone to listening to music. Although Illinois has laws to prevent using a cell phone while driving, people also need to be aware that they should not eat, apply makeup or do anything else while driving. It could mean the difference between getting home safely and ending up in a crash.
