(625 ILCS 5/6-500.2)
(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-500.2)
Statement of intent and purpose.
The purpose of this
UCDLA is to implement the federal Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of
1986 (CMVSA) (Title XII of Pub. Law 99-570) and reduce or prevent
commercial motor vehicle accidents, fatalities and injuries by:
(a) permitting commercial drivers to hold only one driver's license;
(b) disqualifying commercial drivers who have committed certain serious
traffic violations, or other specified offenses; and
(c) strengthening commercial driver licensing and testing standards.
This UCDLA is remedial in nature and should be liberally construed to
promote the public's health, safety and welfare. To the extent that this
UCDLA conflicts with any other provisions of this Code, the UCDLA shall
prevail. Where this UCDLA is silent, the other general provisions of this
Code shall apply.
