More Than 300 Area Motorists Ticketed For Using Cell Phone Behind the Wheel


Lots of local drivers still aren’t following the new state law that prohibits use of hand-held cell phones behind the wheel.

 

The State Journal-Register reports Springfield police have issued 313 tickets for violating the law since it took effect on January 1st.

 

Sangamon County… which gave drivers an unofficial grace period when the law first hit the books… did not have specific numbers on citations deputies have written.

 

Springfield police sergeant Charles Kean says, like seat belt laws in recent years, motorists will eventually come around and comply with the cell phone ban… but he says it will take time.
