So you think it’s okay to glance over at that text message while driving? It’s never a good idea, and next week it will be a really lousy idea.

Police departments around Illinois will be participating in Illinois’ inaugural ‘Distracted Driving Awareness Week’, and if you are caught next week, expect to pay.

Many Illinois and Rockford area law enforcement agencies have taken to social media to remind Illinois motorists that April 24-28, police will be prioritizing enforcement of distracted driving.

Sycamore Police issued a warning to drivers on social media stating:

Next week is Distracted Driver Awareness Week. The Sycamore Police Department will be conducting enforcement details targeting distracted drivers. Hang up those cell phones or risk getting a ticket.

The Carol Stream Police Department says that 300 Illinois law enforcement agencies will participate in the crackdown on distracted driving in an effort to bring attention to the dangers and consequences associated with driving distracted. That means:

  • No reading Incoming text messages while driving
  • No replying to text Messages while driving
  • No checking E-mail
  • No shuffling music on your Spotify or Rhapsody

If you use your phone for GPS, program it ahead of time, so you are not fumbling with it while driving.

If the potential for traffic fines doesn’t make you put down that phone, this distracted driving public service video will.
