Illinois House approves statewide ban on cell phones while driving

The Illinois House approved a measure to ban cell phones while driving.

The bill passed Friday, and now moves on to the Senate.

If approved, drivers would be forced to use hands-free devices or speakerphone for calls.

Police would also be able to stop and ticket drivers holding a cell phone, except during emergency situations.

76 Illinois communities, including Chicago, already ban talking on phones and driving.

It’s illegal in all of Illinois to text and drive.
