LTCI2002-08 P02460 04/05 Teen Drivers 6 ! Texting Ban With the law banning tex- ting while driving, State Farm Agent Deron Powell is encour- aging parents to talk to their teenagers about distracted driving. "Now we have an ideal opportunity for serious con- versations with young drivers about the dangers of not paying P complete attention to the road," Powell explains. "Teen drivers are especially : #....t impacted due to inexperience in managing distractions while also concentrating on safe driv- --" ing. Please encourage young ( drivers to focus only on driv- " ing, for their safety and the safety of others on the road." t The State of Illinois is ready t to fight against distracted driv- : ing. As of January 1, texting t D while driving is banned at all v' times on Illinois roadways, o According to the new law, *' P , drivers may not use any elec- tronic communication device to compose, send, or read an electronic message, which includes e-mail, text messages, ' instant messages, or request- ing access to an Internet site. lx "It might be convenient," )..a says Powell "but trying to write messages or even read mes- sages while also driving is a very serious distraction, making it dangerous not only for the driver and his/her pas- sengers, but also for everyone else traveling." He also emphasizes that being at a stop sign or stop light does not waive the tex- ting restriction. You must have the automobile in parked gear in order to be allowed to read or write messages. "A good rule-of-thumb is to not be tempted to use it, even just one time," says Powell. Illinois is also now banning talking on a cell phone in a school or construction zone, unless you are using a hands- free device. These violations will be treated as moving violations, with fines starting at $75. Okay so they are both blessed with that name...
