Park Ridge, Illinois Considerig Its Own Ban On Cell Phone Ban While Driving

After passing on a cell phone ban late last year, Park Ridge is now considering its own law that would forbid drivers from using any hand held device while driving.

This is a growing trend in the area after Chicago, Evanston and Winnetka have all enacted bans on the use of hand held devices within the past year.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Stephanie Kunz, a nurse and Park Ridge resident, asked aldermen to reconsider a ban on using hand-held devices while driving. Aldermen agreed to discuss the idea at their committee-of-the-whole meeting Monday. Kunz called such a measure “a very smart (way) to promote public safety.”

This seems to be a popular trend for local lawmakers, and I foresee many town falling in line by enacting their own cell phone bans.
