Public transit users take 30 percent more steps and spend roughly eight more minutes walking each day than drivers.
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.
