Ill. Sneak Attack - Jan. 1

Have you been wondering what Illinois legislators planned for the Jan. 1 sneak attack into your wallet or purse? Well, here it is:

Check out this site for 14 new Illinois laws (out of the hundreds) - what they are and what it will cost you not to know there.

And the winner is ... handheld cell phones (held by drivers). Is the fine really only $75. Isn't it more like $100 or $120 in Chicago? Does this mean that Chicago will have to cut its fine, so that it is not greater than the fine under the State statute? Not likely.

Thanks to Jay Schulz of The Woodstock Independent and Harvard Community Radio, where I saw this mentioned on his Facebook page.
