IL House approves cellphone driving ban
"What we're trying to do is just go back to basics. When you took driver's ed, when I took driver's ed, they taught us to keep our hands at '10 and two,' not '10 and with one hand on the phone.' "
Under the proposal, it would still be legal to use a speaker-phone, headset or other hands-free device. The legislation passed the House on a vote of 69 to 48.
