Illinois Law Aimed at Better Truck Use of GPS

Illinois Gov Pat Quinn signed legislation to enhance truck safety when using GPS. It makes truck routes more accessible by requiring local jurisdictions to provide truck route data to the Dept of Transportation, which then will post that information online. It also includes a provision to better educate drivers about the diffrences between truck and consumer GPS devices.

House Bill 1377 goes into effect January 1, 2012. John McAvoy, director of engineering for Rand McNally, was one of nine members of the task force appointed to make recommendations to the Illinois State Assembly.
