Illinois May Make Speeding Tickets Less Painful
Illinois lawmakers are working on a bill that might make the process of getting a speeding ticket a little less painful.
Currently, if you get pulled over and ticketed, you usually have to hand over your driver’s license.
Illinois Association of Court Clerks President Chris Kachiroubas says that can be a real hassle.
He says a driver's license serves as the only I-D for a lot of people and not having it can limit your access to a number of pales including schools and airline flights.
But a senate committee approved a bill that lets drivers “sign and go”, meaning they can promise to comply with the ticket and keep their license.
The measure now moves to the senate floor for a vote.
