Illinois State Police Remind Motorists About Safe Driving

Illinois State Police want to remind motorists to have a heart this Valentine's Day, and always, by avoiding the Fatal Four violations.

Troopers say these four violations - speeding, driving under the influence, not wearing a seatbelt, and distracted driving - are contributing causes to the majority of fatal crashes.

State Police say they are also diligently patrolling in an effort to eliminate the activity of texting while driving.  Texting while driving became illegal in the state on January 1st.

In addition to the new texting law, all occupants traveling in a vehicle must wear seatbelts when traveling on a street or a highway.
