<quoted text>Motorists kill someone in Chicago about weekly.
Here are some stats from a recent report covering Illinois'(reported) crashes from 2004-2007:<quoted text> Whoopsie! Somebody needs to reread the story.
"The Illinois Department of Transportation says 27 bicyclists were killed across the state in collisions with motor vehicles last year. " That's a LOT less than once a week and that's the WHOLE STATE!
- "Chicagoland has more than one traffic fatality every day." I guess this includes auto/auto
- "The chance of death from being hit at 40mph is almost three times that of being hit at 30mph."
- In 2007: 172 pedestrians were killed in Illinois, 110 in NE Illinois, 49 in the City of Chicago.
- In NE Illinois 30% of car/pedestrian crashes are hit-and-run
