NSC Statement on Illinois Bill to Improve Roadway Safety

Bill makes online learning an option for mature drivers.

August 16, 2021

The National Safety Council applauds Governor Pritzker for signing HB 2570, which will improve roadway safety in Illinois. NSC recognizes the work of Rep. Dan Brady and Sen. Omar Aquino to lead this effort to improve the safety of Illinois roads and provide eLearning as an option to help mature drivers save money and allow for increased accessibility of these educational courses. eLearning is an ideal option for people who find it difficult to travel to traditional classroom settings for scheduling, health or other reasons.  

NSC has been a leader in defensive driving training for over 50 years and trains 1 million drivers each year to improve roadway safety throughout the nation. NSC eLearning courses are highly interactive, presenting real-life driving situations, hazard recognition scenarios and defensive driving techniques to motivate drivers to change risky driving habits and behaviors to avoid collisions and traffic violations.
