Illinois’ Texting While Driving Law

Published on July 17th, 2013

If you text on your phone while operating a car, you’ll want to watch this video about Illinois’ ban on texting while driving. As of January 1st, 2010, any Illinois driver caught texting while driving may face a fine upwards of 75 dollars, not to mention points against their license. However, police officials say that it is not always easy to spot a driver who is texting or using their phone until they cause an accident. There are also certain times when it is legal to text inside your vehicle. To learn more, check out this video.
