Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Removes the limitation on home rule units adopting ordinances inconsistent with the Illinois Vehicle Code provision on administrative fees and procedures for impounding vehicles. Removes the time requirement for scheduling a hearing and limits the number of hearing continuances on the impoundment of vehicles. Provides that vehicles not recovered from the towing or storage facility within 18 (rather than 35 days) working days after an administrative hearing officer has rendered a written decision on the impoundment of a vehicle shall be deemed abandoned and disposed of in accordance with Chapter 4 of Article II of this Code. Provides that if the owner of the vehicle notifies the hearing officer or the tow facility within that 18-day period that he or she cannot retrieve the vehicle due to inability to pay the retrieval fee, the tow facility shall not dispose of the vehicle until 35 days after the administrative hearing officer issued the written decision. Allows a municipality, by ordinance, to provide that vehicles not retrieved from the towing facility or storage facility within 35 days after the administrative hearing officer issues a written decision shall be deemed abandoned and disposed of under the provisions of Article II of Chapter 4 of this Code. Effective immediately.
