Texting While Driving And Cellphone Accidents | Belleville/O'Fallon Attorneys

Distracted driving is a leading cause of car accidents nationwide. While distractions may take many forms, cellphone use is widespread and extremely unsafe. Cellphones can take the driver's eyes off the road and hands off the wheel — a dangerous combination.

In Illinois, texting while driving is illegal, and any cellphone use while driving must be through a hands-free device. Unfortunately, drivers ignore the law all too often, placing their own lives and those of others at risk.
