New Year (Driving) Resolution

This new year please make a resolution to avoid distracted driving. Indeed, you must in the State of Illinois.

On January 1, two pieces of Active Trans-championed legislation go into effect. HB 71 and 72 collectively ban almost all drivers from text messaging while driving statewide, and ban most drivers from using cell phones while driving in highway construction and school zones. Thank you to all the legislators who voted for HB 71 and 72.

You can do your part in making our roads safer by signing the Drive with Care Pledge. Check it out here.
