Quinn signs road safety bills

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a series of bills into law today aimed at improving road safety.

The measures establish tougher penalties for extreme and repeat speeders.

One, called "Julie's Law" was inspired by last year's fatal crash that claimed the life of Julie Gorczinski, 17.

Her family attended Friday's signing.

The driver who ran into Gorczinski was traveling nearly twice the posted speed and had a history of speeding tickets for which he had received "court supervision".
