LOC GOV TORT IMMUNITY-BICYCLES                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Local Governmental  and  Governmental  Employees  Tort      
   Immunity  Act. Provides that local public entities are not immune from      
   tort liability for injuries to bicyclists who  are  lawfully  using  a      
   road  and  who  are  injured  as the result of a condition that is not      
   reasonably safe for motor vehicles and that the entity knew about  and      
   had time to correct. Provides that these entities and public employees      
   are immune when the bicyclist is injured while using a bicycle lane or      
   bicycle route unless the entity's or employee's conduct is willful and      
   wanton. Effective immediately.                                              
          FISCAL NOTE (Office of the Illinois Courts)                          
          HB 911 may increase judicial workloads; however, it is not           
          anticipated that the bill would have a substantial fiscal            
          impact on the judicial branch.
