An article in this month’s Illinois Bar Journal highlights the legislative accomplishments of the Traffic Laws Section of the Illinois State Bar Association. The Traffic Laws Section, including attorney Larry A. Davis, assisted in advancing several key pieces of DUI-related legislation this year. The article, written by Ed Finkel, discusses the changes to the lifetime revocation law and removal of ‘hard times’ related to MDDPs/DUI Statutory Summary Suspensions as well as Restricted Driving Permits (RDPs). The article also explains the desired reforms to the marijuana ‘trace’ law related to DUI, which was amendatorily vetoed by Governor Rauner.
