Distracted Driving in Chicago 

In Illinois, it’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle while using an electronic device to text or make a call, unless you’re using hands-free mode. Yet “plenty of people think they’re excellent drivers and can multitask,” says Cynthia Watters, the bureau chief of Safety Programs and Engineering at the Illinois Department of Transportation. This threatens the safety of the distracted driver, their passengers, and everyone on the road.

In 2023, the Illinois State Police gave out more than 10,000 citations for distracted driving and Illinois continues to pass laws to combat it. One new law went into effect this year that prohibits drivers from participating in video calls. While these changes show that distracted driving is a priority, many people are still injured every day. 

If you or a loved one is injured by a distracted driver, they can be held responsible for your injuries and damages. With the right Chicago distracted driving attorney on your side, you can fight for fair compensation for your medical bills, suffering, and other physical and emotional damages.
