SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Legislation being considered by lawmakers in Springfield would allow drivers to keep their licenses in hand after getting speeding tickets.
The bill is sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Mike Noland of Elgin.
 
The proposed law would amend the state's vehicle code to let drivers "sign and go" by making a written promise to comply with the terms of the ticket they receive. Drivers who violate the agreement would have their driving privileges suspended under the law.
 
Currently, non-residents of the state can keep their license if they're pulled over while passing through Illinois. Proponents of the law say Illinois residents should have the same privileges.
 
The measure passed out of a Senate committee last week and is now being considered by the full chamber.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - An 11-year-old girl and her father are hospitalized in critical but stable condition after being shot in St. Louis.
 
Police say the shooting happened about 3 a.m. Tuesday as the father and daughter were driving, soon after leaving a White Castle restaurant. Another car followed them from the restaurant and someone in that car began shooting. The man and his daughter were both struck once in the back.
 
The names of the victims have not been released. Police are looking for the shooter.
 
The attack happened less than a week after 11-year-old Antonio Johnson was shot to death inside his north St. Louis home when someone shot through a window.
