No more court supervision for drivers busted going more than 25-miles-per-hour over the speed limit on local roads and 30 over the limit on highways. Some lawmakers say drivers were getting off too easy and weren't considering the consequences of their actions.
State Representative Sid Mathias says lawmakers passed the bill because some drivers were getting off too easy. They've passed "Julie's Law", which is named after a Frankfort, Illinois, teenager killed last year by someone driving much too fast. Governor Pat Quinn still needs to sign the bill before it can go into effect.
