Share this post

Illinois is getting closer to a statewide ban on cell phones behind the wheel. A statewide ban that has already passed the Illinois House 64-to-46 would outlaw the use of hand-held cell phones while driving... there's already a ban on texting and driving in Illinois.   Hands free devices would be permitted.  Fiines would range from 75 to 150 dollars…depending on whether it’s a first or subsequent offense Opponents argue they can’t ban all forms of distracted driving. The Senate will now consider the measure.
