SB2161 Enrolled LRB9214970DHgc
AN ACT in relation to vehicles.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Illinois Vehicle Code is amended by
adding Section 4-214.1 as follows:
(625 ILCS 5/4-214.1 new)
Sec. 4-214.1. Failure to pay fines, charges, and costs
on an abandoned vehicle.
(a) Whenever any resident of this State fails to pay any
fine, charge, or cost imposed for a violation of Section
4-201 of this Code, or a similar provision of a local
ordinance, the clerk may notify the Secretary of State, on a
report prescribed by the Secretary, and the Secretary shall
prohibit the renewal, reissue, or reinstatement of the
resident's driving privileges until the fine, charge, or cost
has been paid in full. The clerk shall provide notice to the
driver, at the driver's last known address as shown on the
court's records, stating that the action will be effective on
the 46th day following the date of the above notice if
payment is not received in full by the court of venue.
(b) Following receipt of the report from the clerk, the
Secretary of State shall make the proper notation to the
driver's file to prohibit the renewal, reissue, or
reinstatement of the driver's driving privileges. Except as
provided in subsection (d) of this Section, the notation
shall not be removed from the driver's record until the
driver satisfies the outstanding fine, charge, or cost and an
appropriate notice on a form prescribed by the Secretary is
received by the Secretary from the court of venue, stating
that the fine, charge, or cost has been paid in full. Upon
payment in full of a fine, charge, or court cost which has
previously been reported under this Section as unpaid, the
clerk of the court shall present the driver with a signed
receipt containing the seal of the court indicating that the
fine, charge, or cost has been paid in full, and shall
forward immediately to the Secretary of State a notice
stating that the fine, charge, or cost has been paid in full.
(c) Notwithstanding the receipt of a report from the
clerk as prescribed in subsection (a), nothing in this
Section is intended to place any responsibility upon the
Secretary of State to provide independent notice to the
driver of any potential action to disallow the renewal,
reissue, or reinstatement of the driver's driving privileges.
(d) The Secretary of State shall renew, reissue, or
reinstate a driver's driving privileges which were previously
refused under this Section upon presentation of an original
receipt which is signed by the clerk of the court and
contains the seal of the court indicating that the fine,
charge, or cost has been paid in full. The Secretary of
State shall retain the receipt for his or her records.
