Don't forget that TEXTING AND DRIVING is illegal in Illinois and Iowa. In Illinois talking on a cell phone is also illegal. 

 

Make it a habit when you have a child to check your back seat EVERY TIME you get out of your car to ensure you never leave a child behind on accident. It is never safe to leave a child alone in a car-regardless of the weather, length of time or location!
