Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that a school bus must contain either an operating cellular radio telecommunication device (cell phone) or two-way radio (rather than just a two-way radio) while the school bus driver is in possession of a school bus and provides that the cell phone or two-way radio must be turned on and adjusted in a manner that would alert the school bus driver of an incoming communication request. Provides that a school bus driver may use a cell phone to communicate with school authorities or their designees about any other issue relating to the operation of the school bus or the welfare and safety of any passenger. Deletes a provision concerning the use of cell phone that has a digital two-way radio. Makes corresponding changes in a provision concerning post-trip inspections of school busses. Effective immediately.
