NEW LAW MAY ALLOW DRIVERS TO KEEP LICENSE AFTER TRAFFIC STOP

In the past, a police officer could hold on to your driver’s license, even after minor traffic stops, until the case is resolved. This is set to change once Gov. Pat Quinn signs a new measure which would allow those pulled over for minor stops to hold on to their licenses. This allows them more ease when seeking to cash a check or perform anything which requires identification. It also cuts back on further complications, expenses, and other challenges that license collections brought.

The proposed “sign and go” law was written by Elgin Democratic Senator Mike Noland who hoped the measure would help people by removing such a large inconvenience. In addition, the new law is expected to save time and money for police, attorneys, and judges. The law will go into effect on January of 2015.
