Rep. Keicher Warns of Distracted Driving Risk

Speaking during debate on the House floor about Senate Bill 1526, State Rep. Jeff Keicher noted that the legislation runs contrary to the efforts to reduce dangerous distracted driving. Rather than adding to the problem with a new IDOT app for road conditions, he suggested it would be safer to work with companies and automakers to ensure their handsfree programs that are already more safely integrated into your car can provide this information.
