Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Provides  that  if  a  vehicle      
   owner  is  in  an accident and cannot provide proof of coverage of the      
   minimum  liability  insurance,  the  law  enforcement   agency   shall      
   immediately  confiscate that person's registration plates.  Provides a      
   7 business day period to provide proof of coverage at the time of  the      
   accident  without  being  subject to a penalty.  Provides that if that      
   person does not provide the required proof within  the  grace  period,      
   the  registration  plates  and other information shall be forwarded to      
   the Secretary of State.  Provides that the plates, upon receipt by the      
   Secretary, shall be destroyed, and the uninsured vehicle  registration      
   file  shall  be  tagged  to  prohibit issuance of new plates until the      
   qualifications  for  registration  plate   reinstatement   have   been      
   satisfied.   Provides  that an operator of a vehicle may produce proof      
   of his or her own liability insurance, if separate from  the  coverage      
   required  for  the  vehicle.   Exempts  vehicles registered in another      
   jurisdiction from the required liability insurance policy  provisions.      
   Generally effective January 1, 1998, except that the Section regarding      
   required liability insurance policy takes effect July 1, 1998.              
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE
