The Illinois Senate passed "Julie’s Law" Friday, cracking down on excessive speeders. The proposed law is named after Julie Gorczysnski, an Orland Park teenager from Senator Maggie Crotty’s district. It denies court supervision for those going 25 miles over the speed limit on city streets, and 35 miles per hour on the highway.
Julie was killed last summer by a driver who’d received supervision seven times after excessive speeding tickets. The Senate unanimously approved the legislation, and now it moves to the House.
