NEW ILLINOIS LAWS TO PROTECT PEOPLE FROM INJURY OR DEATH: 2012 HAS LOTS OF NEW SAFETY STATUTES ON THE BOOKS
In addition to the new law that lets motorcycles and bicycles run red lights in the State of Illinois that we posted about last week, a lot of other laws were passed by a busy state legislature that are intended to make life safer for everyone in Illinois, including the following laws that have been passed in hopes that injuries and death will be averted:
1. Injuries or Deaths in Airplane Crashes. It is against the law in Illinois for anyone to shine a laser light into the cockpit of an airplane that is in the process of taking off or landing. And, yes, apparently this had been happening quite a bit in the Chicago O’Hare area. (House Bill 167)
2. Injuries or Deaths in School and Playground Injuries. Now, Illinois school officials can suspend, or even permanently expel, any public school student who threatens another student or an employee of the school district, via the Web in online bullying.(House Bill 3281)
3. Injuries or Deaths in Auto Accidents. Now, adults riding in the back seat of a car must buckle up just like those in the front seat, or face being fined and ticketed. (House Bill 219)
4. Injuries or Deaths in Big Rig Crashes. Now, semi trucks can drive along Illinois roadways just like any small sedan at the exact same speed, not just in certain sections of trucking routes (Senate Bill 1913)
