Rockford, like most cities, has some streets that have significantly more traffic than others. While temporary conditions can cause traffic anywhere at any time, some roads are consistently busier than other city streets. For example, the Illinois Department of Transportation identifies the following streets as some of the busiest in Rockford:
- Ulysses S. Grant Memorial Highway
- I-90/Jane Addams Memorial Tollway
- W State Street
- E State Street
- Newburg Road
- S Alpine Road
Busy Streets May Be a Safety Issue
Whether it is one of the streets listed above or any other Rockford road, a busy street creates particular challenges that may increase the likelihood of an accident. For example, drivers may have less distance to stop without hitting another car and less space to move out of the way of another vehicle. Therefore, head-on collisions, rear-end accidents, T-bone crashes, and sideswipe wrecks are all risks on busy streets.
These accidents can result in painful and expensive injuries such as head injuries, broken bones, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, amputations, and death.
