teens, cell phones and cars.
bill, SB210, now being considered by Illinois lawmakers, would prohibit any
person who has a driver’s permit or a graduated license from using a cell phone
while driving. The bill would allow use of the phones in emergencies, such as
calling police or an ambulance.
many similar bills, the measure does not make an exception for phones used in
conjunction with a “hands-free” device.
bill was introduced by Sen. John Cullerton, D-Chicago. It is currently before
the Senate Transportation Committee.
