Posted on Friday May 06, 2022
The Round Lake Police Department issued 71 hands-free law violations during the April Distracted Driving enforcement period. Distracted Driving Awareness Month allowed the Round Lake Police Department to bring heightened awareness to stop motorists from engaging in this dangerous behavior.

During the enforcement campaign, the Round Lake Police Department also arrested/ cited:
13 speeding violations
14 uninsured vehicle violations
 9 seat belt violations
1 child passenger safety violations
11 license violation arrests
3 traffic control device violation
26 other traffic citations

Using your phone in anything other than hands-free mode in Illinois is not only dangerous, it is illegal. Break the cycle. Drop It and Drive.

The Round Lake Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort.  This campaign is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
