Illinois drivers who insist on using their cellphones and other mobile devices while in roadwork and emergency zones, will now find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
Effective immediately, the use of all mobile devices - including the taking of photos - will be prohibited in all roadwork zones and within 500-feet of emergency zones.
In addition the law prohibits commercial drivers from using all hand-held devices.
