"We strongly enforce distracted driving laws for one reason – to save lives," said Sergeant Rick Krakow. "Choose to drive distracted, and you'll have a phone in one hand and a ticket in the other."

Using your phone in anything other than handsfree mode in Illinois is not only dangerous; it is illegal. Break the cycle. Drop It and Drive.

The Naperville Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort. The Illinois distracted driving campaign is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
