Requires a station that offers motor fuel for sale only at self-service islands to provide at one or more islands a calling device that allows a person with a decal, a device, or registration plates issued to a person with disabilities to request assistance in dispensing motor fuel. Sets forth requirements for the calling device and signage. Provides that the station may not impose an additional charge for the assistance in dispensing motor fuel. Sets forth circumstances under which: (i) a station is not required to provide a calling device or (ii) a station is required to provide a calling device only during certain hours. Provides that the requirements of the Act do not apply if the driver or a passenger is reasonably capable of dispensing motor fuel. Provides that a gasoline station owner who violates either of these provisions is guilty of a petty offense and subject to a fine of not less than $300 and not more than $600.
