The Hickory Hills Police Department issued 64 hands-free law violations and 15 citations for other traffic offenses during the April distracted driving enforcement period. We joined forces with state, local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort. Using your phone in anything other than hands-free mode in Illinois is not only dangerous, but also illegal. Break the cycle. Drop it and drive.
The Illinois distracted driving campaign is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Distracted Driving Awareness Month allowed the Hickory Hills PD to bring a heightened awareness to encourage motorists from engaging in this deadly behavior.
