As the weather cools down in Chicago, drivers should be aware of potentially dangerous road conditions. Taking precautions when icy weather hits can help avoid car accidents. Road conditions like black ice can make traveling in Chicago a lot more treacherous.
Recently, temperatures in the Chicago area dipped below freezing and this coincided with over a dozen reported car accidents including a fatal car crash on the Elgin-O’Hare Expressway where a man lost his life after a collision that occurred just west of Gary Avenue.
Taking precautions can help save lives. When driving in in snowy weather it’s important to stay alert and avoid distractions by keeping both hands on the wheel and putting your cellphone away.
