Now that the wintery weather is upon us and travel is getting difficult, IDOT has a link on their website where you can check on the road conditions.
They also have information on two new laws that will take effect on January 1, 2010. According to the website, “The new laws ban motorists from sending text messages while driving in Illinois, and make it illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction zone or school zone. In addition, it will become illegal to compose, send or read text messages, instant messages and e-mail on a cell phone or surf the internet while driving. The ban also includes personal digital assistants and portable or mobile computers, but does not include global positioning systems (GPS) or navigation systems.”
