From cellphones to fees, new state laws take effect today
Of the more than 150 new laws to take effect today, an expansion of a cellphone ban for construction zones is one of the few that will affect most Illinois residents.
The law prohibits the use of cellphones in all work-zone sites, not just those with a reduced speed limit. Another new law bans drivers of commercial vehicles from using a hand-held cellphone or texting while driving.
Illinois drivers also will see the cost to renew license plates go up.
