Illinois now bans texting while driving and imposes a fine of $75. However, multiple law enforcement sources are commenting on the virtual impossibility of proving their case in court. The Springfield Journal-Register is reporting here, that law enforcement right now can not determine people are texting and that State’s Attorneys are unwilling to subpoena the records to prove the case. Once again Springfield has a law on the books that only complicates our lives instead of simplifying them.
In short the message here is having a qualified attorney there at the time your going to court could save you a mark on your record.
