THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE IS ANNOUNCING RESULTS FROM THE STATE’S FIRST “DISTRACTED DRIVING WEEK.” 
 
STATE AND LOCAL POLICE SPENT LAST WEEK TRYING TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE GROWING PROBLEM OF DISTRACTED DRIVING. MASTER SERGEANT MATT BOERWINKLE SAYS TROOPERS ISSUED MORE THAN 11-HUNDRED DISTRACTED DRIVING TICKETS AND 984 WARNINGS.
 
 
BOERWINKLE SAYS THEY ARE TRYING TO CURB THE GROWING PROBLEM OF PEOPLE PAYING TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO THEIR CELL PHONES INSTEAD OF THE ROAD.
 
 
TEXTING OR TALKING ON YOUR CELL PHONE WITHOUT A HANDS FREE DEVICE IS AGAINST THE LAW AND IS A PRIMARY OFFENSE. THAT MEANS COPS CAN PULL YOU OVER SOLELY FOR A PHONE VIOLATION.
