Driving While Distracted As A Threat To Kane County Traffic Safety

Kane County Distracted Driving

Driving while distracted continues to be a foremost traffic concern. It has caused or contributed to many Chicago-area accidents, including those in Kane County. On this site, the topic of driving while distracted and the reasons as to why it is dangerous is further discussed on the “Distracted Driving Accidents And Their Frequency And Causes” page. As seen on that page, statistics show that distracted driving occurs on a frequent basis. While the source of the driver distraction can vary, cell phone usage – and especially texting while driving – continues to be a primary source of driving while distracted.

On January 8, 2019 the Kane County Connects article titled “Sheriff’s Office Cracking Down on Distracted Driving, Speeding” discusses the efforts being made with regard to enforcement measures targeting driving while distracted and speeding.

An excerpt from the article:

“We’re solidly tracking everyone’s concerns about distracted driving in Kane,” Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain said via Facebook. “We’re teaming up with AAA and ABATE for some serious upcoming campaigns. Better put those phones down while you’re behind the wheel!”

The article notes the recent results of enforcement against speeding and distracted driving on Randall Road.
