Illinois drivers soon can leave scenes of minor accidents
SPRINGFIELD — A measure that would allow Illinois drivers to leave the scene of minor crashes and move to a safer location is headed to Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk.
Senate Bill 3409 cleared the House on Friday.
Bill sponsor state Rep. Sidney Mathias, R-Buffalo Grove, said the proposal is just another step to keep roads safer.
“I’m sure one of the things that irritates many of us (is) a little fender bender and traffic is tied up for miles and everybody passes the accident and says why don’t they just pull over,” Mathias added.
The legislation applies to crashes involving only property damage — not personal injury.
