(WEHT) – People who pass a school bus in Illinois when it’s picking up or dropping off children will now face bigger fines.
Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill that doubles the fines for those who violate the ‘No Passing Law.’
First offense fines are now $300.
Second offense fines are $1,000.
Passing a school bus loading or unloading children can lead to a driver’s license suspension.
