   railroad,  or  private  contractor  when  transporting  equipment   or      
   vehicles  required  for  emergency  repair  at train derailment sites,      
   public utility facilities or properties, or water  wells  (now  weight      
   limitations  do  not  apply  to  vehicles operated by a public utility

   facilities or properties or water wells).  Effective immediately.

          In the opinion of DCCA, HB745 fails to create a State mandate.       
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.

          625 ILCS 5/15-111                                                    
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          625 ILCS 5/6-208                from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-208

        Deletes everything.  Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Increases      
   the period that must  elapse  before  certain  persons  whose  driving      
   privileges  have  been  revoked  may apply for a new driver's license.      
   Provides that a driver involved  in  a  motor  vehicle  accident  that      
   results  in  death  or personal injury must report the accident to the      
   police as soon as possible but  no  later  than  one  hour  after  the      
   accident  instead of within 3 hours after the accident.  If the driver      
   is hospitalized and incapacitated the accident  must  be  reported  as      
   soon as possible but in no case later than one hour after the driver's      
   discharge  from  the  hospital  (instead of 48 hours after discharge).      
   Increases the penalty for failure to report a hit-and-run accident  in      
   which  any  person  is  killed, from a Class 4 to a Class 2 felony for      
   which the driver shall be sentenced to a term of  imprisonment  of  at      
   least  3  years  and  not  more  than  14  years. Also makes technical      
   changes.  Effective immediately.
