Unsafe vehicles can be very dangerous and pose serious risks for everyone on the road. While auto manufacturers are required to report any safety issues or injuries and deaths caused by car accidents or vehicle defects, many times these reports are not done and when they are, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration takes too long to investigate.
As the weather begins to warm up, Illinois drivers will start seeing more motorcycles on the roads. Governor Pat Quinn has declared May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Illinois. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), working with other organizations, has launched the "Start Seeing Motorcycles" campaign to urge drivers to share the road with motorcyclists.
