Suit: Illinois school bus driver contributed to boy's injuries

Children don't write traffic rules, but they have to follow them. In fact, until Cook County children are at least 15, they only qualify as a passenger, a bicyclist or a pedestrian. Children are dependent upon adults to teach the rules of the road and set examples by following them.

Truck driver negligence blamed for Illinois boy's crash injuries

Children are told following the rules will keep them safe. The advice only works when other people, including adults, follow the same rules. Cook County pedestrians depend on traffic controls to help them cross streets, but if the controls fail or an inattentive truck driver ignores them, a pedestrian is in danger.

Driving restrictions may be placed upon Illinois drivers with disabilities or health problems. An individual's eligibility is determined by the Illinois Driver's License Medical Advisory Board, under Vehicle Code 625-6: 903. Drivers who knowingly ignore health conditions that could endanger other motorists may be held responsible for injuring or killing others in an auto accident.
