The fix would be rather simple - We need a Law which mandates that if a policy holder cancels their insurance the state gets notified and the plates are suspended! Many fly-by-night monthly insurance companies will insure anyone for 30 days and then that person lets the insurance expire and drives without it! With judges often only imposing a minimum fine, if caught - it behooves people to drive without it! Suspending the plates and imposing the fine of $500.00 dollars would reduce this practice!

John, I have heard about people that just get insurance for a short time just to get their plates. With computers today, the insurance company should notify Springfield that the car is no longer insured & the plates should be pulled. There is no excuse for all these cars not having insurance & still have plates. I like your idea of imposing a $500.00 fine. Just think, with a fine the State can make more money!

Kristine N. Spend an hour or two in traffic court here in Will County and you will see REPETITIVE offenders who continually drive with no insurance by the droves! These people who have no regard for Illinois insurance law, and are often given minimum fines by judges. Personally I would like to see $1000.00 dollar fines made mandatory to stop these perpetrators from saving money by just paying their imposed fines rather then to have valid insurance throughout the year! Courts here in Illinois have become too lenient! $$$ Do the crime - pay the fine! $$$
