House OKs cellphone ban for drivers
Measure now goes to Senate
SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Drivers would not be allowed to use their cellphones while on the road under a measure the Illinois House endorsed Friday.
The measure would force drivers to use hands-free devices or a speaker-phone feature for calls while motoring. A 64-46 vote sent the legislation to the Senate.
Such a law could prevent accidents and fatalities by keeping drivers focused on the road, supporters said.
