Teens in Quincy, Illinois Experience Texting While Driving Simulator
16% of all accidents caused by distracted driving happen to people younger than 20. The Illinois State Police recently set up a simulation in Quincy so that teens could see what might happen to them if they’re texting while driving. Miss Illinois participated and crashed into a truck while typing “hello.” The Illinois police want people to understand the practice is not only dangerous, but it’s against the law for all drivers throughout the state.
