In the past few years, numerous studies have examined the effects of using cell phones while driving. In general, drivers who use cell phones to make calls or texts are more likely to be involved in a car accident.
As a result, states like Illinois have implemented laws that restrict the use of cell phones while driving. The restrictions do not allow drivers to use their cell phones for any purposes while driving in a school zone or construction zone. They also ban drivers from texting while driving in all circumstances.
