DuPage County Distracted Driving Defense Attorneys

Texting While Driving Charges in Illinois Illinois

Illinois law bans the use of electronic devices while driving in most circumstances. If you are cited for texting and/or cell phone use while driving, it will not only incur a fine, but it can also lead to higher insurance rates and eventually the loss of driving privileges. Before taking any further action, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced traffic violations attorney, so you understand your rights and options.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we have provided skilled representation for all types of criminal cases in Northern Illinois since 1979. From minor traffic violations to multiple DUIs to serious felonies, our award-winning attorneys have extensive experience dealing with such cases from both sides. We have former prosecutors and public defenders on our team that have successfully litigated criminal cases at all levels of the state and federal judicial system. We have an in-depth understanding of the inner workings of the Illinois courts, and we put this experience to work to explore every potential legal avenue to secure a positive outcome for our clients.

We are highly recognized not only for our skill and experience but also for our tireless commitment to protecting the interests of each client we serve. Our lawyers are honest, straightforward, and accessible. We know that even a seemingly minor offense such as texting while driving can turn into a major problem in the future, and this is why we devote the utmost attention to each case we handle. When you are cited for any type of traffic offense, we go to work immediately to assess the circumstances and craft the most effective defense strategy.

Texting and Cell Phone Use while Driving in Illinois

Illinois prohibits the use of all hand-held devices while driving, except when they are in hands-free mode; such as when using a headset, speakerphone, or Bluetooth technology. Even hands-free mode is prohibited under the following conditions:

  • Driving in a school zone;
  • Driving in a construction zone; and
  • If you are a novice driving (in general, this applies to new drivers and all drivers under the age of 19).

The state electronic device use while driving law is referred to as a “primary law.” This means a police officer does not need to witness another traffic violation to pull you over for this offense. As with speeding and other moving violations, a conviction will result in points being added to your driving record. Too many points will cause your license to become suspended or revoked.

If you have been cited for texting and/or cell phone use while driving, it is wise to speak with an attorney that thoroughly understands the law and what options you have to reduce or eliminate the negative consequences. At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we work hard to make things as convenient as possible for our clients. We offer free initial consultations, so there is no risk for you to have one of our lawyers assess your case. In addition, we keep extended evening and weekend hours to accommodate your busy schedule. Contact our office today at 630-932-9100630-932-9100 to schedule your consultation.
