Streets and highways are dangerous places, especially when drivers are not paying complete attention to traffic conditions and other vehicles around them. This might be the case in a recent fatal accident in Chicago on Division Street near the Kennedy Expressway.

Should Illinois stiffen the penalty for texting drivers?

Distracted driving is a growing concern here in Kane County, Illinois, and on roadways all over the country because texting while driving causes accidents. A Chicago Tribune editorial column recently addressed the problem, stating that the current penalty for texting Illinois drivers is not enough to deter this dangerous behavior. Perhaps it's time for Illinois to levy stiffer sanctions for distracted driving. Otherwise, the next time a texting driver presses the "send" button, it may be more than a message that is sent. The driver also could be sending a motorist to the hospital or worse, to his or her death.
