I live in the North suburbs, picked up a used recumbent earlier this season (https://www.bikeforums.net/recumbent...do-i-wear.html) and have ridden it all over the North/Northwest suburbs. Starts and stops take a bit of practice, and I am much more deliberate/careful on the recumbent at intersections, but once you get the hang of it, I don't think it's any more dangerous than any other bike. People on this sub-forum were unbelievably helpful when I was trying to figure everything out.
