Distracted driving is a serious problem that puts countless lives at risk. Texting, talking on the phone, or even adjusting the radio while driving can lead to accidents that result in injury or death. That’s why hands-free driving is so important, and why SF547 is such an important bill.
SF547 on hands-free driving passed the Iowa Senate with a vote of 47-3. This is a huge victory for those who have been fighting for this bill, and a step in the right direction towards making Iowa roads safer for everyone. The bill now moves on to the Iowa House for consideration, where it will be met with opposition from some legislators who are trying to kill it.
We need your help to show our representatives that this bill is important and has the support of the people. You can take action today by visiting www.drivesafeiowa.org and contacting your state representative. Tell them that you support SF547 on hands-free driving and urge them to do the same.
To further support the effort, you can make a donation at www.iowabicyclecoalition.org/gives. Every little bit helps to keep the momentum going towards passing this important bill.
In addition to saving lives, SF547 on hands-free driving will also make Iowa’s roads safer for bicyclists, pedestrians, and other vulnerable road users. We all have a responsibility to make our roads safer, and supporting SF547 is a step in the right direction.
