(from Ch. 24, par. 1-2-9.2)
Service of notice of violation of ordinance governing
parking or standing of vehicles in cities with a population over 500,000.
In cities with a population over 500,000, the
notice of violation of an ordinance governing the parking or standing of
vehicles is the summons and complaint for purposes of the Code of Civil
Procedure, as now or hereafter amended.
A police officer, parking enforcement aide, or other person authorized by
ordinance to issue a notice of a vehicle parking or standing violation
complaint may serve the
summons and complaint for a vehicle parking or standing violation by
affixing the original or a
facsimile thereof to an unlawfully parked or standing vehicle or by handing the notice
to the operator of the vehicle if the operator is present.
This Section is not intended to change the law in
effect before the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, but is
intended to clarify existing law. The service of a summons and
complaint in accordance with this Section is legally
sufficient regardless of whether service was made before, on, or
after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989.
