AN ACT concerning transportation.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 1. Findings. There is currently a lack of
information available to State and local government officials
and the public at large regarding the number and type of
traffic violations involving taxis. By imposing a duty upon
circuit court clerks to make this information available,
governments can take further steps to ensure the safety of our
streets for both pedestrians and drivers.
The Taxi Safety Act of 2007 is amended by adding
Section 15 as follows:
(625 ILCS 55/15 new)
Taxi safety reporting.
In counties in which
vehicle citation records are not readily available to the
public, the clerk of the circuit court shall furnish a list of
all moving violations involving a taxi or an individual
licensed or registered as a taxi driver upon the request of a
unit of government that licenses, registers, or otherwise
regulates taxi drivers.
