Illinois Text Messaging and Cell Phone Laws
In school zones, it is a statewide law that unless the vehicle is parked in a parking space, or a handsfree device is used, drivers may not operate cell phones. This applies to buses as well as any other vehicles operating within the school zone. Fines for violation of Illinois cell phone law start at $75. Illinoisʼs cell phone and texting laws are considered “primary” laws. A primary law means that an officer can pull you over for the offense without having to witness some other violation. PLEASE DO NOT TALK OR TEXT IN THE PLEASANT RIDGE SCHOOL ZONE. IT IS FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS.
