SPRINGFIELD — A trio of key traffic safety legislative initiatives proposed by Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White was signed into law today by Governor Pat Quinn. The three new laws continue White’s 14-year effort to make the roads of Illinois the safest ever.
“My mission as Secretary of State is to make the roads of Illinois as safe as possible,” said White. “Since I took office in 1999, I have continually worked to improve traffic safety laws, particularly those laws aimed at better preparing and training teen drivers. While I am pleased we have seen a dramatic reduction of teen driving deaths by nearly 60 percent since 2008, we can never grow complacent in our efforts. These new laws will further improve road safety and help save even more lives.”
