Pedestrian Safey Bill Hearing

Tomorrow (Tuesday), the Senate Transportation Committee is hearing HB 43, the pedestrian safety bill. As you might recall, HB 43 passed the House on a narrow 60-54 vote. We need your help to ensure victory in the Senate.

HB 43 will change Illinois law to require drivers to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, rather than yield. This law will help reduce the more than 6,000 crashes that occur each year in Illinois involving pedestrians.

Please call members of the Senate Transportation Committee and ask them to vote for HB 43.
