A driver who uses his / her cell phone while driving puts everyone at risk including self, other drivers, motorists, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists. Talk and persuade your family and friends to put down their mobile phones and concentrate on the road.
Please remember the following:
- Driving in traffic and talking on the phone is dangerous.
- You think you are a safe and cautious driver using your handheld cell phone when driving but you are not.
- Commonplace behavior and old habits die hard: drive now, talk / text later.
- Texting while driving is against the law in Illinois.
- Stop unnecessary accidents and injuries by stopping talking on the phone.
- Drivers must keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the steering wheel.
- Phone calls and messaging can wait.
- Hand-held devices are four times more likely to get in a crash involving injuries.
- Motorists using a mobile phone are not giving their full attention to the road and what is going on around them.
Hold off on using your hand-held device until you have reached your destination. If you must talk on your mobile device while driving, consider using speakerphones or a hands-free gadget such as Bluetooth, one-digit or voice-activated dialing. Or, pull over to a safe location, park your car and then use your electronic device.
