  • Abstract:
    In 2009, the state of Illinois became a safer place to travel in an automobile as a result of our successful efforts to improve traffic safety. Illinois finished the year with 911 fatalities – the lowest number of people killed in auto crashes since 1921 – and fewer than 89,100 injuries. Motorists wearing safety belts in 2009 reached an all-time high, with a 91.7 percent usage rate, and then increased even more to a record-breaking 92.6 percent in subsequent months.

    Illinois’ primary safety belt law was signed in 2003, and our efforts to increase traffic safety since then are saving lives and preventing injuries. For example, in 2003 just over 76 percent of drivers were wearing their safety belts. At that time, Illinois saw 1,454 fatalities and more than 131,000 injuries.
