SPRINGFIELD, Ill  -- Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider announced Monday a new video series produced by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The series, called "On the Move", is designed to give the public a look into IDOT and cover its chief initiatives.

"This video series is an opportunity for me to provide further details on several imperative topics here at IDOT and also to elaborate on what we are working on to help keep you, the motorist, informed," Schneider said in a statement.

IDOT says that the first video in the series will include information on the rising number of crash fatalities and what must be done to save lives.

Following videos will include information about work zone safety and what drivers need to know when driving through them.
