If you like to talk on the phone while driving, you're going to have to make some changes starting this week.  A new law in Illinois makes it illegal to talk on your phone without some sort of hands-free device.  Illinois State Police spokesperson Monique Bond says the law is designed to cut down on distracted driving.

Bond comments

You can still talk on your phone, but you'll need a Bluetooth device or some other kind of hands-free device.  There are also exemptions if you're reporting an emergency or you're parked on the shoulder of a road.  The new law begins January 1st.
