Distracted driving crashes often caused by simple daydreams

Many people in Illinois know the dangers of texting, surfing or otherwise using a mobile phone while behind the wheel. Legislative changes, public awareness campaigns and harsh enforcement programs have all been targeted to wipe out distracted driving linked to cell phone and tablet use while driving. However, distracted driving is not only a technological problem as most distractions that can affect drivers to the point of causing severe crashes are not linked to the use of mobile devices. Indeed, daydreaming, inattentiveness or other thoughts can be some of the most common causes of crashes involving a distracted driver.

In Illinois and throughout the country, more courts are recognizing that fathers should play a role in their children's lives. However, it's still fairly common for mothers to win custody of a child after a divorce. Those who wish to have custody of their kids should be reasonable when creating a parenting plan. The plan should address any time or financial limitations that could make it harder to provide for a child.
