The Highland Park Patch.com published an article yesterday titled “Police to Crack Down on Cell Phone Use while Driving.” The article discusses various facets concerning cell phone use while driving, including impending enforcement efforts as well as various facts regarding cell phone legislation.
A couple of excerpts include:
The police departments of Lake Forest, Deerfield, Highland Park, Waukegan and Winnetka will join forces Monday, April 1, to conduct on-going education and enforcement pertaining to the use of hand-held cell phones while driving.
In addition to enforcing their community’s ordinance restricting the use of hand-held cell phones while driving, area police officers will actively increase enforcement of the state law, which restricts the use of a hand-held cell phone while driving in a posted school speed zone or construction zone. Violations for the state restriction carry an enhanced fine.
Further details can be found in the Highland Park Patch.com article mentioned above.
