This article is partially OT to me, since it still deals with the IL politicians dictating how all residents live. This freedom deals with making it illegal to make a call on your cell while driving.
"Illinois is considering a statewide ban on the use of cell phones while driving. That would mean that it would be illegal to make a call, listen to voicemail, or text while operating a vehicle anywhere in the state."
Although I don't drive, I still have a comment on this idea of banning all drivers from using cells on IL roads. And my mother said this herself. Cops need to enforce cell phone laws equally around my area. They don't botha pulling W drivers over if they see those folks using a cell while driving. It's crazy it should even be illegal to read a phone text message at say a stoplight.
I'd hate to imagine if IL was one of these states where drivers can't smoke with kids inside the vehicles. I bet the Chicago cops wouldn't enforce a law like dat for everyone as well. I can see em pulling over black smokers only if actual kids are in the car. And I can definitely see the bro or sis behind the wheel eitha speeding off or resisting a ticket if the cop is actually at the vehicle.
I know more drivers are using hands-free cell phones in cars and SUVs. Assuming this new cell law passes, will a Chicago cop still pull a bro/sis driver over for talking by phone in a car in handsfree fashion? I think I know the A to dat Q already. Dat cop betta pray the bro/sis behind dat wheel and on a phone is a NON-smoker...cause dat type of person is more likely to get along with a cop. Unless he/she drinks in the car or smokes illegal sh!t. :)
