11 ticketed for using cell phones while driving in Oswego

Oswego police ticketed 11 motorists for unlawful use of communications devices (cell phones), cited eight more motorists for seatbelt violations and ticketed one motorist for driving without a valid license during a traffic enforcement campaign held Aug. 21 through Sept. 5.

Under state law, the use of hand-held cell phones is prohibited for all drivers. In addition, all drivers of all ages are banned from texting and using a cell phone while driving. Only drivers 19 years old and over are permitted to use a hands-free device while operating a vehicle, under the law.

Police conducted the Labor Day "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click it or Ticket" traffic crackdown campaign in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Transportation and other law enforcement agencies across the state. The campaign was funded with a grant provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

During the campaign, police stepped up their traffic patrols in an effort to keep distracted and impaired motorists off the road.
