I went home and researched Illinois laws a bit, and it actually seems vague. The law bans cell phone usage while operating a vehicle. But is a bicycle a vehicle or a transport? Here's what I ultimately found:
– Trucks, Cars, Tractors, etc. (This can be broken down further)
– Motorized Bicycles, mopeds (>1,000 watt, 20-30 mph, <2 div="" horsepower="">2>
– Bicycles, Tricycles, Unicycles,etc.
– Electric Assist Bicycle (Sub-1,000 watt, sub-20 mph)
