It won’t just be speed limit and cell phone changes affecting Illinois drivers in 2014.
Secretary of State Jesse White is pointing out several other new laws that take effect in the New Year. One allows the Secretary of State to deny or revoke a drivers license for a teenager, if it’s determined that they had an unresolved traffic citation at the time they seek the license. Such citations are often not reported to the state. A second new law prohibits court supervision for drivers who cause fatal traffic accidents… unless that driver has an otherwise clean driving history.
Finally, many drivers with handicapped parking placards will no longer get to park for free at meters. The only exception is if the nature of the disability prevents them from reaching or using the meter. All those new laws are effective January 1st.
