VEH CD-SUSPEND-REPORT HIT RUN
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elapse before certain persons whose driving privileges have been
revoked may apply for a new driver's license.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.
FISCAL NOTE (Ill. State Police)
There would be no fiscal impact on this Dept.
It is not possible to determine what impact the bill will have
on the need to increase the number of judges in the state.
Corrections population and fiscal impacts would be minimal.
STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)
SB 772 fails to create a State mandate.
