Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that the Secretary of State shall include, in the Illinois Rules of the Road publication, information advising drivers to use the Dutch Reach method when opening a vehicle door. Provides that the Secretary of State shall include a test question concerning bicycle safety, of which one may be concerning the Dutch Reach method, in the question pool used for the written portion of the drivers license examination.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill, and makes the following changes: (1) specifies that the Dutch Reach method is to be used when opening a vehicle door after parallel parking on a street; (2) provides that the Dutch Reach method reduces the risk of injuring a bicyclist or opening the door in the path of a vehicle approaching from behind (rather than an oncoming vehicle); and (3) provides that the Secretary shall include test questions (rather than a test question) concerning safe driving in the presence of bicycles.
