Senate Votes To Ban Handheld Cell Phone Use Behind The Wheel


The days of driving and talking on a cellphone handset at the same time may be numbered in Illinois. 

 

The state Senate has approved a ban on the use of handheld devices behind the wheel.  Hands-free technology would still be permitted. 

 

Supporters say drivers are four times more likely to be involved in crashes while using a handset.  But opponents say the bill unfairly chips away at freedom. 

 

The bill now goes back to the House for approval of the Senate's changes, before heading to Governor Pat Quinn's desk.
