In recent weeks, law enforcement across the country have been cracking down on distracted drivers behind the wheel – and it’s not just people on their cell phones.
A recent report from the Illinois State Police said motorists that were pulled over during a crackdown on distracted drivers in Chicago included a man shaving his face while behind the wheel. They issued citations to 135 motorists for distracted driving, mostly for text messaging while driving. The distracted driving tickets carry $120 fines, police said.
