Illinois drivers who abuse disability parking placards and license plates will face tougher penalties in the new year.

Under a new state law, the license suspension periods will increase.

For a first offense, it will jump from 30 days to six months.

The state is also cracking down on those who use a placard or plates registered to someone who has died.

Drivers will have their licenses revoked for a minimum of one year and pay a $2,500 fine.
