I find that I'm going to have to rely on my cell phone during my upcoming trip. And I got one of those "Jupiter Jack" things because I really don't know if the states I'm going to (Wisconsin and Illinois) have any sort of laws regarding cell phone use while driving.

Anyone know what the laws are in these particular states?

This info is dated June 2010, so it should be acccurate:
State Cell Phone Use and Texting While Driving Laws

I don't know why states with a ban don't have to post that ban to alert you as you drive through.

I just visited those states. Coming from a state with 'Primary' offense Cellphone ban... I was immediately distracted by the high % of drivers using phones. I quickly added additional space. (Having been hit 3 x in 3 yrs by cell talking SUVs (after 35 yrs of accident free commercial driving))

Looks like you're safe to talk excluding School and Construction zones.

I actually hate talking on the phone while driving--period. But I expect people to be calling me a lot, arranging meeting times and such.

Thanks for the info.
