    AN ACT concerning transportation.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Illinois Vehicle Code is amended by changing
Section 18c-4701 as follows:
 
    (625 ILCS 5/18c-4701)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-4701)
    Sec. 18c-4701. Insignia on Vehicles.
    (1) General Requirements to be Prescribed by Commission.
Except as otherwise provided in this Section, no intrastate
carrier shall operate any motor vehicle upon the public roads
of this State unless there is painted or affixed to both sides
of the cab or power unit, in accordance with such
specifications as the Commission may prescribe, the trade name
of the carrier as it appears on the carrier's license or the
carrier's recognized logo, together with the license and
registration number of the carrier. Likewise, no interstate
carrier shall operate any motor vehicle upon the public roads
of this State unless there is painted or affixed to both sides
of the cab or power unit, in accordance with such
specifications as the Commission may prescribe, the
registration or authority number of the carrier. However,
except for a household goods carrier, an interstate carrier
operating intrastate may operate a motor vehicle upon the
public roads of this State without the intrastate authority
number of the carrier painted or affixed to any side of the cab
or power unit.
    (2) Use of ICC-Prescribed Identification. Identifying
information prescribed by the Interstate Commerce Commission
may be used in satisfaction of requirements established under
this Section, including special orders granting a petition for
waiver of Sections 1057.22(a) and 1057.22(c)(2) and (4), as
they relate to equipment receipts, of the Lease and Interchange
of Vehicle Regulations (49 CFR 1057), in lieu of numbers or
symbols prescribed by the Commission.
    (3) Identification of Trip Lessees. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Section to the contrary, a motor
vehicle trip leased in accordance with this Chapter, Commission
regulations and orders shall not be required to bear the name
and license number of the lessee if:
        (a) the motor vehicle bears the name and license or
    registration number of the lessor in accordance with
    subsection (1) of this Section, Commission regulations and
    orders;
        (b) the lessor and lessee are commonly-owned; and
        (c) the vehicle carries a photocopy of a letter signed
    by the lessor, on file with the Commission, stating that
    the lessor and lessee are commonly-owned.
    (4) Rules not superseded. The authority of the Illinois
Commerce Commission to regulate the identification of motor
vehicles of intrastate and interstate carriers, engaged in the
transportation of hazardous materials, shall not supersede or
replace the rules and regulations of the Illinois Department of
Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations
Part 390.21, as relates now or hereafter to the markings and
identification of such vehicles.
    (5) Identification on vehicles under 9,000 pounds gross
vehicle weight (GVW). Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight
(GVW) less than 9,000 pounds may, in lieu of identification
required under subsection (1) of this Section display the trade
name of the carrier as it appears on the carrier's license or
the carrier's recognized logo, together with the license and
registration number of the carrier in such manner as to be
clearly legible and visible from both sides of the vehicle at a
distance of 25 feet, when the vehicle is not in motion, and in
accordance with such specifications as the Commission may
prescribe.
