Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        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   elapse before certain  persons  whose  driving  privileges  have  been      
   revoked  may apply for a new driver's license.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.
