Prospect Heights is joining the nationwide "No Text On Board Pledge Day" on Wednesday, Sept. 19 to encourage drivers of all ages to take the pledge "to never text and drive again."
When driving and using a cellphone to call or text, the chance to being involved in a crash increases 400 percent, according to the Illinois Secretary of State. And a recent study from the National Safety Council indicates more than 100,000 vehicle crashes occur every year because of a texting driver.
