    (625 ILCS 5/3-701)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-701)
    Sec. 3-701. Operation of vehicles without evidence of
registration - Operation under mileage plates when odometer
broken or disconnected. No person shall operate, nor shall an
owner knowingly permit to be operated, upon any highway unless
there shall be attached thereto and displayed thereon when and
as required by law, proper evidence of registration in
Illinois, as follows:
        (1) A vehicle required to be registered in Illinois. A
    current and valid Illinois registration sticker or
    stickers and plate or plates, or an Illinois temporary
    registration permit, or a drive-away or in-transit permit,
    issued therefor by the Secretary of State; or
        (2) A vehicle eligible for Reciprocity. A current and
    valid reciprocal foreign registration plate or plates
    properly issued to such vehicle or a temporary registration
    issued therefor, by the reciprocal State, and, in addition,
    when required by the Secretary, a current and valid
    Illinois Reciprocity Permit or Prorate Decal issued
    therefor by the Secretary of State; or except as otherwise
    expressly provided for in this Chapter.
        (3) A vehicle commuting for repairs in Illinois. A
    dealer plate issued by a foreign state shall exempt a
    vehicle from the requirements of this Section if the
    vehicle is being operated for the purpose of transport to a
    repair facility in Illinois to have repairs performed on
    the vehicle displaying foreign dealer plates. The driver of
    the motor vehicle bearing dealer plates shall provide a
    work order or contract with the repair facility to a law
    enforcement officer upon request.
    No person shall operate, nor shall any owner knowingly
permit to be operated, any vehicle of the second division for
which the owner has made an election to pay the mileage tax in
lieu of the annual flat weight tax, at any time when the
odometer of such vehicle is broken or disconnected, or is
inoperable or not operating.
