The week of April 23-27 is Illinois Distracted Driving Awareness Week and Illinois State Police will be on the lookout for those who do not have their full attention on the road.
Sean Ramsey is a Safety Education Officer with the state police. He says distracted driving should be an easy problem to solve.
Ramsey says it only takes a second of driving distracted to cause an accident.
Ramsey says police will be out in full force looking for distracted drivers on Illinois roads not just to write tickets, but to bring awareness to the risks of driving distracted.
