By CBS Chicago
CHICAGO (CBS) — Signs are everywhere on Illinois streets, reminding drivers to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk, even if there’s no stop sign, but does anyone really yield for pedestrians?
More than 6,000 pedestrians are hit by cars every year in Illinois. Out of those, 172 are killed, including 50 children. Most pedestrian fatalities occur in marked crosswalks.
