No One Should Be Hurt Because Of Distractions
Distracted driving creates the same risk as drunk driving according to numerous studies. Other studies suggest that the risks from distracted driving are greater than those of drunk and impaired driving. Unfortunately, more and more people are using text and email as means of communication while driving. For some people, especially young people, texting has surpassed talking as the main use for a cellphone.
This is especially troubling given the fact that young drivers already have less experience behind the wheel than other drivers. That inexperience and the fact that younger drivers are more prone to assume risky driving habits such as texting while driving, than older drivers create a great deal of risk on our roads. Too many drivers check their social media accounts, text, email or post pictures while driving.
In response to this risk, Illinois has made it illegal to text or check email while driving. Cellphones may be used only in hands-free mode while driving, and any use of a cellphone in a work/construction zone or in a school zone is prohibited in Illinois.
Unfortunately, making something illegal does not stop it from happening.
