According to the Illinois traffic code a violation of Scott's law could potentially result in:

A fine of up to $10,000.
Suspension of driving privileges for a period of up to a year but not less than 90 days for damaging another person’s property.
Suspension of driving privileges for a period of not less than 180 days but no more than two years for injuring another person.
A two-year suspension of driving privileges for causing the death of another person.

So, since you didn't cause any injury or property damage I would think the only thing you'd potentially be eligible for is the fine. Don't be scared by the $10,000 figure either as that would be for the most serious offenses (disobeying the law AND causing death or very serious property damage).
