Shannon McNulty, partner at Clifford Law Offices, spoke to an NBC-Chicago reporter for a story about dangerous road debris on the Channel 5 News at 10 p.m.
McNulty, who has handled many transportation cases at the firm, was interviewed by reporter Katie Kim about what defenseless drivers can do when debris flies off of vehicles unexpectedly on Chicago’s highways.
“The drivers should always be aware of the vehicles traveling in the lanes around their own vehicle and they should especially make certain to keep a safe distance,” McNulty stated in the story.
Kim reported that some 9,000 accidents have occurred on Chicago’s highways between 2012-2016 from road debris, according to statistics provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Tragically, that has led to 17 people killed and 1,534 other injured from debris on the roads that other drivers tried to avoid.
