Senate Approves Limits to Cell Phone Use While Behind the Wheel


If you haven’t invested in hands-free technology for your cell phone yet… you may not want to wait too long.

 

Legislation that will prohibit drivers from talking on handheld cell phones behind the wheel has cleared the state Senate.

 

The bill has already passed the House, and will go back for concurrence on one Senate amendment.

 

After that vote, the measure will go to Governor Pat Quinn.

 

Supporters of the bill say people talking on cell phones are four times more likely to be in a crash.

 

But opponents say cell phones are just one of many distractions that could put drivers at greater risk.
