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.

No municipality with fewer than 1,000,000 inhabitants may regulate or prescribe safety requirements for motor vehicles used to transport for hire students to or from a school where students are in attendance. This Section does not prohibit any municipality from which such vehicles originate their operation from registering such vehicles or requiring the purchase of vehicle stickers where no regulatory requirements are imposed.
    This Section is a limitation on the power of home rule municipalities with fewer than 1,000,000 inhabitants, and the regulation and prescribing of safety requirements for such motor vehicles is declared an exclusive State function in municipalities with fewer than 1,000,000 inhabitants under Article VII, Section 6, paragraph (h) of the Constitution.

65 ILCS 5/11-40-3

    (65 ILCS 5/11-40-3) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-40-3)
    Sec. 11-40-3. Subject to the provisions of Section 11-40-3.1 of this Code, the corporate authorities of each municipality may by ordinance declare all inoperable motor vehicles, whether on public or private property and in view of the general public, to be a nuisance and authorize fines to be levied for the failure of any person to obey a notice received from the municipality which states that such person is to dispose of any inoperable motor vehicles under his control, and may authorize a law enforcement agency, with applicable jurisdiction, to remove, after 7 days from the issuance of the municipal notice, any inoperable motor vehicle or parts thereof. However, 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 or junking of motor vehicles.
    As used in this Section, "inoperable motor vehicle" means any motor vehicle from which, for a period of at least 7 days or any greater period fixed by ordinance, the engine, wheels or other parts have been removed, or on which the engine, wheels or other parts have been altered, damaged or otherwise so treated that the vehicle is incapable of being driven under its own motor power. "Inoperable 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.
