Active Transportation Alliance statement in support of HB 3972

Tomorrow's vote on HB 3972 could be a step toward safer roads throughout Illinois. If enacted into law, it would expand statewide the current ban in many municipalities on the use of hand-held mobile devices by motorists.

The legislation imposes a common-sense requirement that drivers remain focused on driving. No text, video or email message is so important as to risk a life.

Active Transportation Alliance was a leading champion for Public Acts 96-0130 and 96-0131 in the 2009 General Assembly session. These laws prohibited drivers from text messaging while driving, and from using hand-held mobile devices in school or highway construction zones. HB 3972 will build on the successes of those laws to impose a common standard statewide.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, using a cell phone while driving delays your reaction time as much as driving while intoxicated. This increases your risk of crashes by four times compared to other drivers. 

The Active Transportation Alliance is a non-profit, member-based advocacy organization that works to make bicycling, walking and public transit so safe, convenient and fun that we will achieve a significant shift from environmentally harmful, sedentary travel to clean, active travel. The organization builds a movement around active transportation, encourages physical activity, increases safety and builds a world-class transportation network. The Active Transportation Alliance is North America’s largest transportation advocacy organization, supported by more than 6,000 members, 1,000 volunteers and 40 full-time staff. For more information on the Active Transportation Alliance, visit or call 312.427.3325.
