IL House Cell Phone Legislation

Friday, 1 March 2013

If you like to drive and chat, you may need a hands-free device sometime in the future.

The Illinois House approved a measure prohibiting hand-held use of a cell phone while driving.

The 64-46 vote is enought to move the bill to the state Senate.

The legislation would force drivers to use a hands-free device or a speaker phone feature for calls.

If the bill becomes law, police could pull over anyone holding a cell phone while they're driving.

Texting while driving is already illegal in Illinois.
