The answer to your question can vary from day to day or hour by hour. A car accident, for example, can cause significant congestion on any road. However, some streets are typically traveled more than others. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, these streets include but are not limited to: Veterans’ Parkway, East Road, Morrissey Drive, North Road, E Oakland Avenue, and S Main Street.
The Danger of Crowded Roads
There is good news and bad news about driving on a busy street. The good news is that car accidents are less likely to result in serious injuries or deaths. While severe and fatal accidents can still occur, they are less likely because speeding is less likely. The bad news is that there is less room to make a mistake. A distracted, drowsy, drunk, or otherwise negligent driver may:
- Hit the car in front of them
- Forget to stop for a traffic signal
- Have slower reaction time to an unexpected danger in the road
- Cross into another driver’s lane
Any of these accidents can cause injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Head or brain injuries
- Other injuries
After the crash, you may have significant medical expenses, be unable to earn your usual income, miss doing the things you enjoy, and suffer physical and emotional pain.
