This Chicago DUI attorney thinks more nominal probable cause for a traffic stop has just been signed into law by Governor Quinn.
From now on, you must monitor your passengers in the back seat, even if they are adults, in order to avoid being stopped by the police.
Back seat passengers will now be required to wear seat belts in Illinois under a measure signed into law today.
The move strengthens the state's current seat belt laws, which require passengers in the front seat and anyone under the age of 19 to wear safety belts. Police will be able to stop vehicles if they notice a passenger isn’t strapped in.
Exemptions include those riding in taxis or emergency vehicles such as police cars and ambulances.
Seriously, how many of you think this is the work you sent your legislators down to Springfield to do?
