For many of us, owning or operating a car is an everyday part of life that we give little second thought to, but from a legal perspective, there is a great deal of information that everyone should know. Before you even purchase your vehicle, you must take into consideration how you will pay for the car, what warranties cover your purchase, and auto insurance policies required under Illinois law. Traffic courts hear more cases than any other court, so once you are in the driver's seat, knowing your rights, responsibilities, and what to do in the face of a car accident can minimize legal problems and potentially save a life.
