As a thriving urban metropolis, the Chicago area, its neighborhoods and streets are crowded with both pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles, all of which must learn to share the road and obey the applicable laws. Unfortunately, not all motor vehicles know or choose to obey the rules of the road and accidents occur and, in some cases, driver negligence can result in injuries or deaths.
Given the sheer volume of pedestrians walking to and from the high-rise office buildings in the Loop, as well as the number of tourists touring the city by foot, there are bound to be accidents. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2009 alone, more than 5,200 pedestrians were injured by a motorist and more than 100 pedestrians were killed by a motor vehicle.
