VEH CD-VEH LENGTH-TECHNICAL                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to make a stylistic change to  a      
   caption in a provision concerning vehicle length requirements.              
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          625 ILCS 5/15-107                                                    
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          625 ILCS 5/15-112               from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 15-112         
          625 ILCS 5/15-113               from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 15-113         
          625 ILCS 5/15-301               from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 15-301         
        Deletes everything. Amends the Vehicle Code.  Provides  that  all      
   officers  and  technicians  who  set up or operate portable scales for      
   wheel or axle load or issue citations based on  the  use  of  portable      
   scales  shall  attend  and  successfully  complete classroom and field      
   training, with additional biennial training.  Provides  that  when  an      
   officer,  upon  weighing  a  vehicle and the load, determines that the      
   weight is unlawful and an overweight arrest ticket is issued  (instead      
   of  the  officer  just  determining  that the weight is unlawful), the      
   officer shall require the  driver  to  stop  the  vehicle  and  remain      
   standing  until  a portion of the load is removed to reduce the weight      
   and shall arrest the driver or owner.  Provides that whenever any axle      
   load of a vehicle exceeds the axle or tandem  axle  weight  limits  by      
   2,000 pounds or less, no axle overweight arrest ticket shall be issued      
   (instead  of  requiring  the  owner or operator to shift or remove the      
   excess and not allowing an overweight arrest ticket to  be  issued  if      
   the  gross  weight is shifted or removed).  Provides that whenever the      
   gross weight of a vehicle with a registered  gross  weight  of  80,000      
   (instead  of 73,280) pounds or less exceeds the weight limits by 2,000      
   pounds or less, no arrest ticket for  overweight  of  gross  shall  be      
   issued  (instead  of  requiring  the  owner  or operator to remove the      
   excess and not allowing an arrest ticket for an  overweight  violation      
   to  be  issued if the excess weight is removed). Removes the provision      
   setting the fine for violating the  provisions  concerning  wheel  and      
   axle  loads  and  gross  weight  at $50 for an excess weight up to and      
   including 2,000 pounds.  In  the  provisions  concerning  permits  for      
   excess  size  and  weight,  provides  that  any  permit  issued by the      
   Department  for  roadways  under  which  the   Department   has   sole      
   jurisdiction or shared jurisdiction with any local agency shall exempt      
   the  permittee  from  obtaining  a permit from the local agency. Makes      
   other changes.
