Spread the word on new no-texting law

November 29, 2013 

I am writing to you about the new Illinois law concerning phone use and driving. Being part of a generation that is engrossed in technology, I understand how important it is to implement such laws for the safety of others. Texting and driving is a careless driving technique and should be stopped at all cost. Many people have died from distracted drivers using phones.

These issues are why I am glad an article was published about the new law because the people need to know that precautions are being taken to keep them safe. Also it can be used as a message to the people using their phones or texting while driving. Please keep printing articles such as this because the people need them.
