Poll: 85 Percent Want Behind The Wheel Hand-Held Phone Ban


Illinoisans are overwhelmingly in favor of banning the use of hand-held cell phones behind the wheel, according to a survey commissioned by the Chicago Sun-Times.

 

That poll finds 85-percent of people questioned think Governor Pat Quinn should sign that legislation, which was approved by state lawmakers this spring.

 

The bill would impose fines for using a cell phone handset while driving, but hands-free devices would still be allowed.

 

10 other states already prohibit talking on hand-held cell phones while driving.
