Minutes from the February 7, 2014 Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s (CMAP) Regional Freight Leadership Task Force demonstrate that the Elwood Inland Port proposal is still being pushed at the state level.

New Hand-Held Cellphone Ban in Illinois
Illinois is the 12th state to ban the use of hand-held devices while driving:
The new law bans hand-held cellphone use except in an emergency and allows only for speakerphones and headsets that feature voice-activated or one-digit dialing.
The new law imposes fees starting at $75 for drivers caught using a hand-held cellphone while driving. Drivers could pay $150 for repeat offenses and may eventually have their driver's license(s) suspended.
The new law imposes stricter penalties following crashes in which electronic devices were being used at the time of collision. A crash causing great bodily harm can earn a driver up to one year in prison and a fatal crash can result in a prison sentence of up to three years.
