Short description: 
BICYCLES-HIGHWAY USE-IMMUNITY                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that a person riding a      
   bicycle is an intended and permitted user of any highway  in  Illinois      
   except  for  a  highway  on  which  bicycle  use has been specifically      
   prohibited by law and the  prohibition  is  indicated  by  appropriate      
   signage. Amends the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort      
   Immunity Act. Provides that neither a local public entity nor a public      
   employee is liable for any injury to a bicyclist caused by a condition      
   of a bike lane or shoulder designated for bicycle use unless the local      
   public  entity  or  public  employee  is  guilty of willful and wanton      
   misconduct proximately causing the injury.                                  
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Illinois Courts Administrative Office)                
          There may be an increase in judicial workloads. However, it is       
          not anticipated that HB 4366 would increase the number of            
          judges needed in the State.                                          
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          (Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)              
          HB 4366 does not contain language indicating a limitation on         
          home rule powers and functions. Therefore, in the opinion of         
          DCCA, the legislation does not pre-empt home rule authority.         
          FISCAL NOTE (Attorney General Office)                                
          Fiscal impact is unknown, but there probably would be none.
