Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

625 ILCS 5/4-214

    (625 ILCS 5/4-214) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 4-214)
    Sec. 4-214. Violations of Section 4-201.
    (a) Any person who violates Section 4-201 of this Code or who aids and abets in that violation:
        (1) shall be subject to a mandatory fine of $200; and
        (2) shall be required by the court to make a
disposition on the abandoned or unclaimed vehicle and pay all towing, storage, and processing charges and collection costs pursuant to Section 4-203, subsections (a) and (e).
    (b) When a vehicle is abandoned, it shall be presumed that the last registered owner is responsible for the abandonment and shall be liable for all towing, storage, and processing charges and collection costs, less any amounts realized in the disposal of the vehicle. The last registered owner's liability for storage fees may not exceed a maximum of 30 days' storage fees.
    The presumption established under this subsection may be rebutted by a showing that, prior to the time of the tow:
        (1) a report of vehicle theft was filed with respect
to the vehicle; or
        (2) the vehicle was sold or transferred and the last
registered owner provides the towing service with the correct identity and address of the new owner at the time of the sale or transfer.
    If the presumption established under this subsection is rebutted, the person responsible for theft of the vehicle or to whom the vehicle was sold or transferred is liable for all towing, storage, and processing charges and collection costs.
