Quinn Signs Traffic-Related Laws
Gov. Pat Quinn has signed a plan that lets people charged with some minor traffic offenses pay penalties without a court appearance.
In a Sunday statement, Quinn says the legislation helps reduce the burden on drivers and the court system by cutting the number of ``unnecessary minor cases.''
Under the plan motorists cited with petty traffic violations can plead guilty and pay fines without showing up to court.
Earlier this year, Quinn signed a law that ends the practice of posting a driver's license in Illinois as security after certain traffic citations.
Both laws take effect in January.
The bills are SB3509 and SB2583.
