Question: Can a motorcyclist be fined for doing “wheelies”?Answer: A new state law effective January 1, 2013, imposes a minimum fine of $1,000 for driving a motorcycle on one wheel while speeding. The new law also raises the height of a motorcycle’s handlebars to the height of the driver’s head. Previously, handlebars could not be higher than the operator’s shoulders.  For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.  If you have a legal question, send it to illinoislawcolumn@isba.org.Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
