Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

(65 ILCS 5/) Illinois Municipal Code.

65 ILCS 5/11-40-3.1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-40-3.1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-40-3.1)
    Sec. 11-40-3.1. The General Assembly hereby finds that in municipalities of more than 1,000,000 inhabitants, the proliferation of hazardous dilapidated motor vehicles constitutes a hazard to the health, safety and welfare of the public, and that addressing the problems caused by such abandoned dilapidated vehicles constitutes a compelling and fundamental governmental interest. The General Assembly also finds that the only effective method of dealing with the problem is to promulgate a comprehensive scheme to expedite the towing and disposal of such vehicles. The corporate authorities of each municipality of 1,000,000 inhabitants or more may by ordinance declare all inoperable motor vehicles, whether on public or private property and in view of the general public, to be hazardous dilapidated motor vehicles, and may authorize a law enforcement agency, with applicable jurisdiction, to remove immediately, any hazardous dilapidated motor vehicle or parts thereof. Nothing in this Section shall apply to any motor vehicle that is kept within a building when not in use, to operable historic vehicles over 25 years of age, or to a motor vehicle on the premises of a place of business engaged in the wrecking, selling, or junking of motor vehicles.
    As used in this Section, "hazardous dilapidated motor vehicle" means any motor vehicle with a substantial number of essential parts, as defined by Section 1-118 of The Illinois Vehicle Code, either damaged, removed or altered or otherwise so treated that the vehicle is incapable of being driven under its own motor power or, which by its general state of deterioration, poses a threat to the public's health, safety and welfare. "Hazardous dilapidated motor vehicle" shall not include a motor vehicle which has been rendered temporarily incapable of being driven under its own motor power in order to perform ordinary service or repair operations. The owner of a vehicle towed under the provisions of this Section shall be entitled to any hearing or review of the towing of such vehicle as provided by State or local law.

    Sec. 11-41-1. Any city, village, or incorporated town incorporated under any special law of this state, except those having a population of more than 100,000 but less than 200,000 inhabitants, subject to "The Illinois Vehicle Code", as now and hereafter amended, may, by ordinance, direct, license and control all wagons and other vehicles conveying loads within the city, village or incorporated town, or any particular class of such wagons and other vehicles, and prescribe the width and tire of the same.

No person shall be required to pay any such vehicle license tax by any municipality in this state, except the municipality in which he resides. No firm or corporation shall be required to pay any such vehicle license tax in any municipality in this state except the one in which such firm or corporation maintains and conducts its principal place of business in this state.

However, no offense shall be classified in excess of a Class B misdemeanor.
