Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Establishes speed limits for park zones where children are present. Provides that (i) exceeding the posted speed limit while passing a park zone or in an area where children are going to or coming from a park zone or (ii) failure to come to a complete stop at a stop sign or signal, including a signal at which a right turn on red is permitted, in an area where a park zone speed limit applies, is a violation of the new provision. Provides that a violation of the new provision is a petty offense with a minimum fine of $250 for a first offense and $500 for a second or subsequent offense. Provides that the violator shall be charged an additional $50, to be paid to the park district for safety purposes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the original bill with changes and additions. Provides that, within 6 months of the effective date of the new provision, the Department of Transportation shall design a set of standardized traffic signs for park zones and park zone streets, the design of which shall be made available to all units of local government or manufacturers at no charge except for reproduction and postage. Provides that units of local government may set maximum speeds of less than 20 miles per hour for park zones.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Re-inserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with changes. Provides that exceeding the posted reduced speed limit is not permitted while traveling on a park zone street that has been designated for the reduced speed (rather than while passing a park zone). Provides that the park zone speed limit applies only on park zone streets where the speed limit has been posted. Deletes language providing that the provision does not prohibit use of speed detection devices within 500 feet of park zone signs. Effective immediately.
