SHARE Illinois speeders may soon avoid turning over licenses

SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois House advanced a measure on Thursday that allows drivers pulled over for minor traffic offenses, like speeding, to keep their licenses, rather than turn them over to police.

The “Sign and Drive” legislation, SB2583, lets Illinois “join the 21st century” in issuing traffic citations, said state Rep. Dennis Reboletti, R-Elmhurst.

“If you get pulled over for a DUI, you do not qualify for this you cannot sign and drive,” said House sponsor John D’Amico, D-Chicago.

The House voted 116-0 in favor of the bill — an earlier draft has already passed the Senate. The bill returns to the Senate for concurrence.
