Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (625 ILCS 5/6-803) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-803)
    (Text of Section before amendment by P.A. 100-674)
    Sec. 6-803. Procedure for issuing jurisdiction.
    (a) When issuing a citation for a traffic violation, a police officer shall issue the citation to a motorist who possesses a valid driver's license issued by a party jurisdiction and shall not, subject to the exceptions noted in Section 6-306.4 of this Code and paragraph (b) of this Section require the motorist to post collateral to secure appearance, if the officer receives the motorist's personal recognizance to comply with the terms of the citation.
    (b) Personal recognizance is acceptable only if not prohibited by law. If mandatory appearance is required, it must take place according to law, following issuance of the citation.
    (c) Upon failure of a motorist to comply with the terms of a traffic citation, the appropriate official shall report the failure to comply, in a manner prescribed by the Secretary, to the licensing authority of the jurisdiction in which the traffic citation was issued. The report shall be made in accordance with procedures specified by the Secretary and shall contain information as specified by the Secretary as minimum requirements for effective processing by the home jurisdiction.
    (d) Upon receipt of the report, the Secretary shall transmit to the licensing authority in the home jurisdiction of the motorist the information in a form and content as contained in the Compact Manual.
    (e) The Secretary may not, except as provided under Section 6-306.4 of this Code, suspend the privileges of a motorist for whom a report has been transmitted, under the terms of this Compact, to another member jurisdiction.
    (f) The Secretary shall not transmit a report on any violation if the date of transmission is more than 6 months after the date on which the traffic citation was issued.
    (g) The Secretary shall not transmit a report on any violation where the date of issuance of the citation predates the most recent of the effective dates of entry for the two jurisdictions affected.
