Illinois police departments say officers are using discretion about whether to cite drivers who are breaking the state’s new ban on hand-held cellphone use while driving. The Bloomington Pantagraph reports law enforcement agencies appear to be giving drivers latitude if they’re caught violating the new law. The measure took effect January 1st. Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says troopers are enforcing the law, but can make the decision whether to issue a ticket or a warning. Nashville Police Chief Brian Fletcher says they are following this same pattern, by issuing warnings at this time, but if it someone becomes a repeat offender or if it is blatant misuse, they will start writing tickets. Violators face fines starting at $75, and repeat offenses bring the possibility of a suspended license.
