Bill Proposed To Bar Supervision For Extreme Speeders

Following a Chicago Tribune investigation in yesterday's newspaper, a bill has been introduced in Springfield that would bar judges from giving Court Supervision to drivers caught speeding 40 miles per hour over the speed limit.  In yesterday's Tribune article they found that Chicago judges have been giving court supervision to over two-thirds of drivers who were caught driving over 100 miles per hour.  Several of the drivers who had been given court supervision were caught again driving over 100 miles per hour.  Court Supervision, if completed successfully, keeps the citation from being put on your driving record.  The House Rules Committee will consider the bill this week and a vote is expected.  If enacted, the bill would not allow judges to give drivers caught driving 40 miles per hour over the speed limit court supervision.
