No Cell Phones in School Zones Sign


There's a funny song by Ray Stevens called "You talk too much." You can find it on YouTube.com; just type in the title.

Why is this important now? Crystal Lake has posted signs at the beginning of school zones to give fair warning to motorists who are talking on their cell phones. A new state law forbids chatting on handheld cell phones in school zones and construction zones.

An article in an area paper today stated that all 27 miles of I-290 in Chicago are now a Work Zone. If the entire length of I-290 is now a work zone and handheld-cell-phone-free zone, it'll be easy pickin's for troopers who see motorists holding a phone.

A Bluetooth or other hands-free device is a wise choice - for many reasons other than to avoid a ticket. How about for this reason - "avoiding a crash"?

My compliments to Crystal Lake for purchasing and installing these signs. Thanks!
