New Laws

TEXTING AND DRIVING LAW CHANGE

On July 1st, Illinois became a hands-free state. Law enforcement officers can now ticket drivers for texting, calling, navigating — anything that involves holding a cellphone, tablet or laptop. Violators face fines of $75 for a first offense, $100 for a second, $125 for a third and $150 for any more offenses. Three violations in a year and a driver’s license could get revoked.

WORK ZONE SAFeTY

Changing conditions related to work zones can challenge even the safest drivers. Work zone safety is important to us at the Road District. We understand that driving through work zones can be frustrating at times and we do our best to help protect your safety while you’re getting to your destinations. Driving too fast or recklessly through a work zone is dangerous to your life and passengers and it is dangerous to workers laboring to improve roadways and further ensure your safety while driving.

We are all responsible for work zone safety, so please use caution and obey speed limits when driving through our work zones. And, remember, using handheld phones is illegal when driving anywhere in Illinois. Help us help you get there safely.
