The holiday season is a time that many people enjoy taking road trips to visit far-away relatives and friends. Long trips, however, can present many hazards to motor vehicle operators and their passengers. In some instances, these hazards cannot be avoided because they are caused by other motor vehicle drivers.

In some instances, other motor vehicle drivers are the source of motor vehicle collisions on road trips. The number of different ways that motor vehicle operators can be negligent is almost too numerous to count. Some of the most common examples of motor vehicle driver negligence include the following:
The State of Illinois recognizes the importance of sober driving and the serious dangers associated with drunk driving. Operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating drugs can lead to a serious collision accompanied by harmful bodily injuries.
In Illinois, a person can be arrested – and later convicted – of driving under the influence (DUI) if he or she is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or more, while he or she is in “actual physical control” of a motor vehicle.
DUIs often result in criminal charges being imposed against the offending driver. In addition, if the DUI results in a motor vehicle collision in which one or more individuals sustain injuries, the drunk driver could be civilly liable for the injuries and damages from which the accident victim(s) suffers.
