Included in the 12 other citations were violations of

  • speeding, seat belt requirements, and

driver’s license.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month allowed the Crystal Lake Police Department to bring a heightened awareness to stop motorists from engaging in this deadly behavior. The Crystal Lake Police Department joined forces with state and 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.
