New Law Can Revoke DL

A new Illinois law aimed at reducing motor vehicular fatalities is on the books. From now on if a person is cited for certain traffic violations which resulted in a death, that person's driver's license can be revoked for up to one year by the Illinois Office of Secretary of State. Specifically, the law states action can be taken to revoke a person's license as a result of a violation of any offense regulating the movement of traffic that was the proximate cause of death of any person. Instead of just paying the traffic ticket,which is the same as entering a guilty plea, IFCA recommends appearing in court with legal counsel to ask for supervision on the traffic ticket. If you have any questions regarding this law, contact Kevin at the IFCA office.
