Thanks to our generous donors, Active Trans is able to carry out our important work throughout the Chicago region.
Chicago ups cell phone fee
The Tribune reported that Chicago unanimously voted to increase the fine for driving while using a hand-held cell phone from $75 to $100. In addition, the fee for using the phone while at the time of a crash will rise from $200 to $500.
This is good news, I supposed.
Better news would be banning all cell phone use – hands free or otherwise – entirely. More important than your hands on the wheel is your mind on the road and on those near you.
