Illinois Cell Phone Laws

Starting January 1, 2014, Illinois banned the use of all hand-held devices while driving, which includes talking and texting on your cell phone.According to www.drivinglaws.org, “A person may not operate a motor vehicle on a roadway while using an electronic communication device to compose, send, or read an electronic message.” Illinois drivers are also prohibited from using their cell phones in any capacity while driving in a school zone, driving in a highway construction zone, and if you are a novice driver.
 
These laws were created to help prevent car accidents and create a safer environment for drivers and passengers on the road. Illinois cell phone laws are considered primary laws, which means that an officer can pull you over and offer a citation without having to witness any other violations. Consequences for violating the cell phone laws start with a $75 fine.
 
Turning your cell phone off, or on silent before driving, is the best way to avoid a car accident, fines and potentially injuring another party.
