Governor Pat Quinn signs road safety bills

Monday, 05 August 2013 17:32 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn has signed three road safety bills into law, including one beefing up adult drivers' education requirements.

Another lets the Secretary of State's office reject driver's permits or licenses for drivers 18 years and younger who have pending citations. The law was prompted by a 15-year-old who was seriously injured when hit by a teen driver. That driver received a license days later.

The third law deals with limiting court supervision as a sentence when a driver is charged in a fatal accident. The law was named for a woman who was killed by a distracted driver.  The driver was sentenced to court suspension which means he didn't get a conviction on his record. The law takes effect Jan 1.
