Orland Park: The texting stops here

 The Southtown Star reports that Orland Park is ROCKING the state's new texting while driving ban. Their enforcement saves lives. I think the Village should print up tickets for texting that are shaped like people.

Enforcement is EVERYTHING for laws like this to make a difference in safety and quality of life. Orland Park just became more a more livable place. I think the rest of the Southland's finest can live up to their example.
