As of July 1, 2019, there are tougher penalties in Illinois for using a mobile device — and even for just holding it — while driving.
The new law covers cellphones, tablets, laptops and other electronic devices.
First offenses are now ticketed violations with fines, and with three violations in a year a driver is subject to the suspension of their license. The law was backed by Secretary of State Jesse White and signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker. To take the pledge against distracted driving or become an advocate, please visit ItCanWait.com.
