People walking are five times as likely to be killed by a driver traveling 30 mph as one going 20 mph.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Today, the Illinois House of Representatives adopted HR 1090 which declares April to be Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Last year the Illinois General Assembly adopted two bills championed by Active Trans to end distracted driving. As of Jan. 1 2010 it is illegal in Illinois to text message while driving, and illegal to use a hand-held mobile phone in school or highway construction zones.

Thank you Illinois legislators for helping make the roads safer for everyone.
