Welcome to the site. There is a bounty of information on this site. Sometimes there are debates but what can we say, were only human. I can't tell you much about the Springfield area but there are several on here who are in that area. As far as laws are concerned, this site is pretty accurate but it is always in an individuals best interest if they look them up. The individual then knows the laws rather than assuming it. If you can't find something or you need an opinion of someone else, just ask, we are all usually pretty friendly. Again, welcome to the site.
