(625 ILCS 5/7-329)
(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 7-329)
Proof of financial responsibility made voluntarily.
1. Proof of financial responsibility may be voluntarily by or on behalf
of any person. The privilege of operation of any motor vehicle within this
State by such person shall not be suspended or withdrawn under the
provisions of this Article if such proof of financial responsibility
has been voluntarily filed or deposited prior to the offense or accident
out of which any conviction, judgment, or order arises and if such proof, at the
date of such conviction, judgment, or order, is valid and sufficient for
the requirements of this Code.
2. If the Secretary of State receives record of any conviction or
judgment against such person which, in the absence of such proof of
financial responsibility would have caused the suspension of the driver's
license of such person, the Secretary of State shall forthwith
notify the insurer or surety of such person of the conviction or judgment so reported.
