Warning Tickets Being Issued for New Cell Phone Law


Most Illinois law enforcement agencies do not appear to be in any rush to write tickets for violations of the state’s new cell phone law.

 

The law that took effect January 1st prohibits using a hand-held phone behind the wheel. In Sangamon County, deputies have been instructed not to write tickets and to only issue warnings during January. After that, Undersheriff Jack Campbell says it will be up to the officer’s discretion.

 

Other communities are also giving their officers a lot of latitude in enforcing the new law.
