Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Removes reference to neighborhood vehicles from the definition of "non-highway vehicle". Provides that a unit of local government may authorize the operation of low-speed vehicles on streets that have a speed limit of more than 30 miles per hour but not greater than 35 miles per hour, provided that it first considers the volume, speed, and character of traffic on the street and whether low-speed vehicles may travel safely on that street. Provides that if a street is under the jurisdiction of more than one unit of government, each unit of government must agree to allow low-speed vehicles on that street. Provides that upon authorization of low-speed vehicles on a street, appropriate signs shall be posted. Removes signs or decal requirements for low-speed vehicles. Effective immediately.
