CHICAGO (WLS) -- Governor JB Pritzker and Illinois State Police are raising awareness Monday about Scott's Law, a law designed to protect emergency responders.
So far this year, at least fourteen Illinois State Trooper squad cars have been hit by drivers. Last week downstate near Collinsville, a trooper had serious injuries when he was struck while on foot responding to a crash.
Scott's Law states that when drivers see any police or emergency vehicle on the road, they must proceed with caution or change lanes if possible.
