IDOT Concerned About Distracted Drivers

Distracted drivers are polluting the roadways more than ever before, and the Illinois Department of Transportation is well aware of it.


I-DOT Spokesperson, Paul Wappel, says the State of Illinois has a major problem with drivers diverting their attention away from the roads.



Distracted driving includes texting on the phone, eating or drinking, talking to other passengers in the car, and anything that takes your attention off the road. According to the Highway National Traffic Safety Administration, more than 26,000 people died from 2012 to 2019 due to distracted driving.
