Arrests - Prosecutions.
The State Police shall patrol the public
highways and make arrests for a violation of this Act. Police officers shall
make arrests for violations of this Act occurring upon the highway within
the limits of a county, city, village, or unincorporated town or park district.
The State's Attorney of the county in which the violation of this Act occurs
shall prosecute all violations except when the violation occurs within the
corporate limits of a municipality, the municipal attorney may prosecute if
written permission to do so is obtained from the State's Attorney.
The provisions of this Act shall not apply to a child passenger with a
physical disability of such a nature as to prevent appropriate
restraint in a seat, provided that the disability is duly
certified by a physician who shall state the nature of the disability, as well
as the reason the restraint is inappropriate. No physician shall be liable,
and no cause of action may be brought for personal injuries resulting from the
exercise of good faith judgment in making certifications under this provision.
