    • 104 fatalities caused by an Illinois motorcycle accident

Deaths caused by drivers running red lights are on the increase in Illinois and across the country. A study completed by AAA last month shows deaths from cars running red lights hit a 10-year high.

Chicago ABC7 news reported total traffic deaths in 2018 was the third-deadliest of the decade on American roads, 

The majority of IL fatal car crashes in Illinois, so far, in 2019 have occurred on city streets.
