Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White says drivers will have a couple of new laws to be aware of starting January 1st. Kelsey's Law is for teens trying to get a license. If they have an unresolved traffic citation, they will not be able to get a driver's license.
The second new law is called Patricia's Law and will make sure drivers involved in fatal crashes will be ineligible for court supervision unless they have maintained a clean driving history. White says both laws were inspired by serious traffic crashes.
