Drop it and drive campaign

North Aurora police are enforcing new cell phone laws...with zero tolerance.

The new law took effect Jan. 1. Here are some staggering statistics on the problem:

• Drivers using hand-held phones are four times more likely to get into an accident causing injuries. (U.S. Department of Transportation)

• Distracted driving is the leading cause of fatal crashes among teens. (National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration)

• Sending or receiving a text at 55 mph is the equivalent of driving the length of a football field blind. (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).  If you must talk on the phone, use a speakerphone or headset that allows for voiceactivated or one-digit dialing. The state's new hands-free cell phone law allows both. For more information, visit illinoistollway.com/dropitanddrive Illinois. Thanks for your cooperation and drive safely!
