Illinois Bill

Bill would end driver’s license forfeiture

A new bill proposed in Illinois by state Senator Michael Noland would remove the necessity for driver’s to give up their license when issued a ticket.  Currently, the system requires anyone who receives a ticket to give their license over as a means of incentivizing people to show up for their court date.  However, this causes a huge nuisance when people are traveling, checking into a hotel, buying medicine, etc.

The new bill relies on a written agreement that the offender will sign, thus promising to show up in court or pay the fine on time.  If people still don’t show up for their court date, the court will have the power to suspend your license.
