Will County, IL – In April, the Will County Sheriff’s Office took decisive action against distracted driving, issuing a total of 424 citations—177 for hands-free cell phone law violations and 247 for other driving-related offenses. 

This intensive enforcement was part of the Distracted Driving Awareness Month initiative. Traffic Lt. Denny expressed concern over the ongoing issue of driver distraction and its potentially severe consequences. “Driver distraction is a persistent issue that often has life-altering consequences,” Lt. Denny remarked. “Issuing a citation is a proven way to get motorists to pay attention or pay the price.”

The campaign involved collaboration with the Illinois State Police, local law enforcement, and highway safety partners and was supported by federal safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Lt. Denny emphasized the importance of continued vigilance, stating, “Distracted Driving Awareness Month may be over, but we will continue our efforts to stop motorists from engaging in this deadly behavior.”
