Ban Cell Phone Use While Driving

You may already know that you shouldn’t drive while using a hand-held phone. Texting while driving makes a driver 23x more likely to crash. Drivers talking on a cell phone are 4x more likely to have a car accident. For more than a year now, this has been illegal. As of January 1, 2014, Illinois law banned the use of all hand-held devices while driving. A driver may not operate a motor vehicle on a roadway while using an electronic communication device to compose, send, or read and electronic message.

Prohibiting Laws
• Only hands-free technology such as speakerphones, bluetooth, and headsets are permitted.
• All cell phone use is prohibited while driving in a school zone.
• All cell phone use is prohibited while driving in a highway construction zone.
• All cell phone use is prohibited if you are a novice driver.
• All Illinois drivers are prohibited from texting.

In Illinois, cell phone use while driving is considered a primary law. This means that an officer can pull you over for offense and issue a ticket even if there has been no other wrong-doing, for instance, running a stop sign while texting. If you get a ticket for driving with a cell phone, fines start at $75 and repeat offenders could pay $150. You also risk a suspended license. In addition to tickets and fees, the new law also imposes stricter penalties following crashes that cause bodily harm. The distracted driver could face up to one year in prison and up to three years in prison if the crash is fatal.

Protect Lives
Frank’s Auto Glass would like to remind you to always drive safely. This is one lesson that it would be a shame to learn the hard way. Make your own pledge to drive without cell phones and to create a safer environment for drivers, passengers, bikers, and pedestrians alike.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
