Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning Korean War Veteran license plates.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
625 ILCS 5/3-626
Adds reference to:
625 ILCS 5/11-208.3from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 11-208.3
625 ILCS 5/11-208.6

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that in municipalities with a population of less than 1,000,000 and counties with a population of less than 3,000,000, an ordinance that provides for the administrative adjudication of automated traffic law enforcement system violations shall require that all determinations by a technician employed or contracted by the municipality or county that a motor vehicle committed a violation must be reviewed and approved by a law enforcement officer. Provides that in municipalities with a population of 1,000,000 or more and counties with a population of 3,000,000 or more, an ordinance that provides for the administrative adjudication of automated traffic law enforcement system violations shall require that all determinations by a technician employed or contracted by the municipality or county that a motor vehicle committed a violation must be reviewed and approved by a law enforcement officer or by an additional technician trained in traffic management and not employed by the contractor who employs the technician who made the initial determination. Provides that in all municipalities and counties, the automated traffic law ordinance shall require that no additional fee shall be charged to the alleged violator for exercising his or her right to an administrative hearing, and the automated traffic law ordinance shall provide that after an administrative hearing where a person is found to have committed a violation, the person shall be given additional time to pay the civil penalty imposed equal to the amount of time that the person had to pay the original violation upon issuance. Provides that a municipality or county that produces a recorded image of a motor vehicle's violation must make the recorded images of a violation accessible to the alleged violator by providing the alleged violator with a website address, accessible through the Internet. Provides that a county or municipality, including a home rule county or municipality, may not use an automated traffic law enforcement system to issue violations in instances where the motor vehicle comes to a complete stop and does not enter the intersection during the cycle of the red signal indication unless one or more pedestrians are present, even if the motor vehicle stops at a point past a stop line or crosswalk where a driver is required to stop. Provides that a municipality or county that has one or more intersections equipped with an automated traffic law enforcement system must provide notice to drivers by posting the locations of the systems on the municipality or county website. Provides that an intersection equipped with an automated traffic law enforcement system must have a yellow change interval that conforms with the Illinois Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices published by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Provides that a municipality or county shall make a certified report to the Secretary of State in order to suspend a registered owner's driving privileges whenever a registered owner of a vehicle has failed to pay any fine or penalty due and owing as a result of 5 automated traffic law enforcement system violations.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Corrects a typographical error. Provides that an automated traffic law ordinance shall provide that after an administrative hearing where a person is found to have committed a violation, the person shall be given at least 25 days to pay the civil penalty (rather than "additional time to pay the civil penalty imposed equal to the amount of time that the person had to pay the original violation upon issuance" as provided by the introduced bill, as amended). Provides that a municipality or county operating an automated traffic law enforcement system shall conduct a statistical analysis to assess the safety impact of each automated traffic law enforcement system at an intersection following installation of the system and provides further details about the study. Provides that if the statistical analysis for the 36 month period following installation of the system indicates that there has been an increase in the rate of accidents at the approach to the intersection monitored by the system, the municipality or county shall undertake additional studies to determine the cause and severity of the accidents, and may take any action that it determines is necessary or appropriate to reduce the number or severity of the accidents at that intersection. Makes other changes.
