April was Distracted Drivers Awareness Month, and last week we reminded you that texting on your phone while sitting at red light is still considered distracted driving, and it is illegal.

The Rockford Police Department may not necessarily had officers out on foot looking for people texting at red lights like parts of Chicago did, but they sure did issue their share of tickets to distracted drivers in just one week last month.

I can't lie guys, when I saw this post from Rockford Police yesterday I totally felt the guilt and uneasiness I believe they intended to create with it....

Point taken. I will no longer be the person texting at red lights while in the car alone, and I hope you won't be either.
