Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(a) Except as
provided in paragraph (b) of this Section, any resident of another state
which is a member of the Nonresident Violator Compact of 1977, who is cited
by a police officer for violating a traffic law or ordinance, shall have
the option of (1) being taken without unnecessary delay before a court of
jurisdiction or (2) executing a written promise to comply with the terms of
the citation by signing at least one copy of a Uniform Traffic Ticket
prepared by the police officer. The police officer may refuse to permit a
nonresident violator to execute a written promise to comply with the terms
of the citation if the nonresident violator cannot furnish satisfactory
evidence of identity or if the officer has probable cause to believe the
nonresident violator cited will disregard the written promise to comply
with the citation.

of the Nonresident Violator Compact of 1977, then the rules established by
the Supreme Court for bail bond and appearance procedures apply.

(c) If the person fails to comply with the executed written promise to
comply with the original terms of the citation as indicated in paragraph
(a) of this Section, the court shall continue the case for a minimum of 30
days and require that a notice of the continued court date be sent to the
last known address of such person. If the person does not appear or
otherwise satisfy the court on or before the continued court date, the
court shall enter an order of failure to appear to answer such charge. The
clerk of such court shall notify the Secretary of State of the court's
order within 21 days.
(d) Upon receiving such notice, the Secretary of State shall comply
with the provisions of Section 6-803 of this Code.
