2014 Illinois Roadway Fatalities to Date


Driving Zero Fatalities to a Reality

At the Illinois Department of Transportation, safety is our number one priority and we stand committed to reducing the number of fatalities to zero on Illinois roadways.

Please help us by driving defensively, buckling up, putting down your cell phone, slowing down in work zones, wearing the proper gear while motorcycling, and designating a sober driver if you have been drinking.

Driving Zero Fatalities to a Reality is our message. Every life counts. With your help, we will ensure we are doing everything we can to save lives.

*Fatality data are provisional and based on information submitted to IDOT for fatal crashes occurring on all public roadways within the state. Fatalities occurring on weekends or holidays will not be included in the total until the next business day, or until such time the data can be entered.
