It is here. Illinois is a handsfree state. And lots of people ignore it, as I'm sure they ignore it everywhere. I'm assuming the cop cut him a break. The improper lane usage should establish fault....

In my case, I'm going to ask for everyone else's advice. I don't have another S2000 owner around to compare against. I am fairly sure the straps were replaced with the top. They're quite taught...
