NewsViews: Traffic Deaths

Monday, September 03, 2012

On this Labor Day weekend, as police are out patrolling the highways, our guests were John Webber from IDOT and a guest from Illinois State Police to discuss the rise in the number of traffic deaths this year (17 percent from January to July).

The two also discuss what's behind the increase, how they're working to bring down the numbers, as well as distracted driving, wrong way crashes and the signs on the expressways with messages about highway deaths.
