Madison, WI (PRWEB) January 03, 2014
ProClip USA, a distributor of vehicle specific mounts and device specific holders for electronic handheld devices, recognizes new Illinois law prohibiting drivers from talking on the phone while holding a cell phone and driving.
This new law, effective January 1, 2014, requires Illinois drivers to use a Bluetooth or other hands-free devices to make phone calls while driving. Drivers must pull over to the side of the road to make a call while holding a cell phone, unless it is an emergency situation.
Chicago and some other Illinois cities already had hands-free laws in place, but this new law is effective statewide. The fine is $75 for the first offense and will increase by $25 with subsequent offenses. If a driver is stopped three times in one year, he will lose his license.
With new technology, many smartphones have voice recognition software that allows users to make phone calls without ever touching the phone. Many people also use their smartphones to play music through their car speakers or as a GPS device.
ProClip car phone mounting solutions allow drivers a place to securely place their phone in the car. Use of ProClip car phone mounts allows drivers to safely and legally enjoy these smartphone features.
Don Rankin, COO of ProClip USA, says, “As more states move towards hands-free driving laws or any limitation on the use of cell phones while driving, many drivers find using a ProClip as the designated spot for their phone in the car is helpful to keep them safe while driving and to abide by traffic laws.”
