Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that no person may use a wireless telephone at any time while operating a motor vehicle on any section of a highway that is undergoing a construction or maintenance project (instead of on a highway in a construction or maintenance speed zone).

Senate Committee Amendment No. 5
Adds reference to:
625 ILCS 5/11-605.1

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Expands the definition of "construction or maintenance speed zone" to include an area where the Department of Transportation, Toll Highway Authority, or local agency has posted signage advising drivers that a construction or maintenance speed zone is being approached. Provides that if it is determined that a preexisting established speed limit is safe with respect to the conditions expected to exist in the construction or maintenance speed zone, additional signs shall be posted which give proper due warning that a construction or maintenance speed zone is being approached, indicate the maximum speed limit in effect, and state the amount of the minimum fine for a violation. Provides that the Section prohibiting the use of wireless telephones in school speed zones and construction or maintenance speed zones does not apply to a person using a telephone in voice-operated (instead of "voice-activated") mode or to a person using a wireless telephone by pressing a single button to initiate or terminate a voice communication. Provides that voice-operated mode includes the use of a headset.
