A simple reminder from Rules of the Road 101

I have frequently observed people playing “chicken” with vehicles on our Hinsdale streets, trying to be first to get around other parked vehicles.

We have congestion due to landscape, construction and repair trucks serving our community. We also have parents lining up to transport students to and from school.

Illinois Rules of The Road, Chapter 4, Page 29, states regarding lane usage that vehicles must stay in the right lane and cannot cross over to the left lane until they yield to oncoming traffic.

Clearly, this has not been my experience driving in our town.

It is best for everyone to apply the same rules in order to avoid confusion and possible collisions. — Paula “Rules of the Road” Reynolds
