(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 7-606)
Uninsured motor vehicles - suspension and reinstatement.
The Secretary shall suspend the vehicle registration of
any motor vehicle determined by the Secretary to be in
violation of Section 7-601 of this Code, including any motor
vehicle operated in violation of Section
3-707, 3-708 or 3-710 of this Code by an operator other than the
owner of the vehicle. Neither the fact that,
subsequent to the date of verification or conviction, the owner acquired
the required liability insurance policy nor the fact that the owner
terminated ownership of the motor vehicle shall have any
bearing upon the Secretary's decision to suspend.
The Secretary is authorized to suspend the registration of any motor
vehicle registered in this State upon receiving notice of the conviction of
the operator of the motor vehicle in another State of an offense which, if
committed in this State, would constitute a violation of Section 7-601 of this Code.
Until it is terminated, the suspension shall remain in force after the
registration is renewed or a new registration is acquired for the motor
vehicle. The suspension also shall apply to any motor
vehicle to which the owner transfers the registration.
In the case of a first violation, the Secretary shall terminate the
suspension upon payment
by the owner of a reinstatement fee of $100 and submission of proof
insurance as prescribed by the Secretary.
In the case of a second or subsequent violation by a person having
ownership interest in a motor vehicle or vehicles within
the preceding 4 years, or a violation of Section 3-708 of this Code, the
Secretary shall terminate the suspension 4 months after its effective date
upon payment by the owner of a reinstatement fee of $100 and submission of
proof of insurance as prescribed by the Secretary.
All fees collected under this Section shall be disbursed under subsection (g) of Section 2-119 of this Code.
