Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that the definition of "medical examiner" shall be changed to mean an individual certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Defines "foreign commercial driver" as a person licensed to operate a commercial motor vehicle by an authority outside the United States, or a citizen of a foreign country that operates a commercial motor vehicle in the United States. Expands the definition of "imminent hazard" to include any condition of a vehicle, employee, or commercial motor vehicle operations that substantially increases the likelihood of serious injury or death. Provides that an employer or commercial motor vehicle owner shall not allow or require an employee to drive a commercial motor vehicle if he or she knows or should reasonably know (rather than just knowingly) that the employee has (1) had their license suspended, revoked, or cancelled by any state; (2) has lost the privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle in any state; (3) has been disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle; (4) has more than one driver's license except as provided by the Uniform Commercial Driver's License Act; or (5) is subject to or in violation of an "out-of-service" order. Provides that foreign commercial drivers are subject to disqualification. Provides that the Secretary of State shall report convictions of traffic violations by a foreign driver's license holder to that driver's licensing authority. Provides that Public Act 98-176 shall not take effect until July 8, 2015 (rather than July 1, 2014). Effective immediately.
