Default PSA: Wheelie poppers ...Stay out of Illinois.

I was watching the news and saw that Illinois has a new law "Public Act 97-743" which fines anyone caught popping a wheelie for $1000.00 (Yes that's one thousand ..no typo).

So if you are one of those who take public roads for private playing ground and you happen to live in IL, Happy New Year and I wish you luck.

It's probably in an effort to stop that to be honest IMO, it's a wheelie, its not worth a 1000.00 fine, now a 100$ I could see.

Impossible, just too many bikes. There aren't too many police depts capable of dealing with thousands of bikes/dirtbikes/quads taking to the highways at the same time. All they can do is hope to contain it.

The law would be effective all other times of the year, when they can get the guy pulled over. Doesn't Florida have some insane wheelie laws too?

Isn't that in MO (St Louis) and not IL?

I had the same reaction. $100.00 is not just reasonable but warranted, but 1000.00 is way overboard.
