Cell phone use while driving persists despite the fact that laws have been imposed limiting or prohibiting their use while driving. Illinois law prohibits the use of hand-held cell phones while driving in a school zone or highway construction zone. Furthermore, it prohibits reading or sending text messages and emails while driving anywhere in the state. Several cities, including Winnetka, Evanston and Chicago, prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones while driving all together.
The use of cell phones to talk or read and send messages can cause a driver to become distracted. Moreover, the use of hand-held phones doesn’t allow the driver to use both hands to control the vehicle. According to the National Highway and Transportation Safety Association, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, drivers that use cell phones are four times more likely to get into auto accidents that result in injuries.
