27        (d)  The  Illinois  Department  of  Transportation  shall
28    analyze  the  data  provided  by  law  enforcement   agencies
29    required  by this Section and submit a report of the findings
30    to  the  Governor,  the  General  Assembly,  and   each   law

 4    not  exclusive,  contains  examples   of   areas   in   which
 5    statistically significant aberrations may be found:
 6             (1)  The   percentage   of   minority   drivers   or
 7        passengers being stopped in a given area is substantially
 8        higher  than  the proportion of the overall population in
 9        or  traveling  through  the  area   that   the   minority
10        constitutes.
11             (2)  A  substantial  number of false stops including
12        stops not resulting in the issuance of a  traffic  ticket
13        or the making of an arrest.
14             (3)  A disparity between the proportion of citations
15        issued  to minorities and proportion of minorities in the
16        population.
17             (4)  A disparity among the officers of the same  law
18        enforcement  agency with regard to the number of minority
19        drivers or passengers being stopped in a given area.
20             (5)  A disparity between the frequency  of  searches
21        performed  on  minority  drivers  and  the  frequency  of
22        searches performed on non-minority drivers.
23        (e)  Any    law    enforcement   officer   identification
24    information or  driver  identification  information  that  is
25    compiled  by  any  law  enforcement  agency  or  the Illinois
26    Department of Transportation pursuant to  this  Act  for  the
27    purposes of fulfilling the requirements of this Section shall
28    be   confidential  and  exempt  from  public  inspection  and
29    copying, as provided  under  Section  7  of  the  Freedom  of
30    Information Act, and the information shall not be transmitted
31    to  anyone except as needed to comply with this Section. This
32    Section shall not exempt those materials that, prior  to  the
33    effective  date  of  this  amendatory Act of the 93rd General
34    Assembly, were available under  the  Freedom  of  Information
                            -13-     LRB093 03751 DRJ 13545 a
