People caught texting and driving on Illinois roadways could risk losing their licenses under a measure being considered by state lawmakers. It’s part of a statewide effort against distracted driving.
The proposed rule change would up the ante on anyone who breaks the state’s distracted driving law. Instead of just a ticket or warning, anyone who’s caught texting and driving would be hit with a moving violation.
Those are the kind of tickets that count as strikes against your driving record; after three, your license gets suspended.
