Snow and Ice Season Coming
Statewide (November 20, 2020) – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) urges residents to prepare for the upcoming winter season. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), 24% of car accidents occur on snowy, slushy, or icy pavement. Harsh Illinois winters make those types of accidents more frequent in the Sucker State.
Lerner and Rowe urges you to drive cautiously during inclement weather. Please follow our Chicago winter driving safety tips to prepare for the snow. Like many businesses and government agencies, IDOT has been hit hard by COVID-19. While it pledges to have adequate plows and salt trucks to keep roads clear, it also notes that COVID-19 could affect staffing levels. Source: IDOT
