Motorists will experience a little Illinois-style alchemy starting on Sept. 15, when new traffic fines will turn lead feet into gold.
The state legislators upped the fine amounts for some minor infractions, including speeding, which will cost an additional $54.

The Sun-Times outlines the issue here.
So be forewarned.
Having a lead foot will mean less gold in your pocket.
