The Cost Of Being Caught Getting It On In A Car In Illinois
Here's to a lot of us getting lucky this week.
It's finally warming up outside and with Valentine's Week upon us, it's the season to get hot and bothered.
A lot of cities have a "lover's lane", a secluded romantic area that couples drive to but stays known as the lowkey spot to get frisky in. And there are plenty of good places in the Quad Cities to park and make out in.
Cars are a popular place to do the deed. According to Sex & Psychology, out of 4,000 Americans, 77% have fantasized about doing it in a car. There's a level of difficulty and maneuvering involved with it though. It's not going to be like that scene in "Titanic".
That's not happening in the back of a Camry. But sometimes you just can't wait so if you want to get it on in your car though, be smart with where your car is. There's not a law that says you can't butter the biscuit in a car but you could run into problems if you get caught.
How Much You'll Pay If You're Caught
Part of the excitement of doing the deed in a public place is the thrill of the possibility of getting caught. But if you get caught making love in a public place in a car in Illinois, not only will it kill the mood but you could face charges including public indecency or indecent exposure.
Those carry with them insane costs. According to a Chicago law firm, public indecency is a Class A misdemeanor that can have a fine of up to $2,500 and one year in jail. Even with just one conviction.
Find Law says that if it's done within 500 feet of a school or if it's someone's third conviction for public indecency, it's then a Class 4 Felony that's punishable by 1-3 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.
While the thrill of possibly getting caught can be fun, the idea of paying thousands in fines doesn't sound like a cute time so if you want to do it in a car, just make sure to park it somewhere discreet.
