Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that a licensed physician or qualified physician assistant or advanced practice nurse, if he or she certifies that an applicant is eligible for disability license plates or a disability parking decal or device, may issue that applicant a temporary disability parking pass, which the applicant may use for 30 days or until he or she receives disability parking plates or a disability parking decal or device, whichever is earlier. Provides that the Secretary of State shall issue these temporary parking passes to licensed physicians and qualified physician assistants and advanced practice nurses upon request and without charge and shall adopt rules for implementing the provision. Makes corresponding changes in other provisions of the Vehicle Code and the Motor Fuel Sales Act. Provides that it is a violation of the Code to possess, issue, manufacture, or transfer a fictitious or fraudulent temporary disability parking pass or to alter a temporary pass or to provide false information to obtain a pass. Imposes the same penalties as apply to fictitious or fraudulent disability license plates and parking devices.
