Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Allows highway commissioners to prohibit operation of trucks or other commercial vehicles, or impose weight limitations on those vehicles, on designated highways after conducting a public hearing and approving a resolution. Provides that if written notice requesting a road not be posted at a permanently reduced weight is signed by 3 persons owning land in that road district and is given to the highway commissioner who fails to change or evaluate a permanently reduced weight limit, the 3 landowners may petition the county superintendent of highways. Requires a petitioned county superintendent of highways to hold a hearing on the petitioned issue, and allows him or her to order the highway commissioner to change a posted weight limit. Provides that if the highway commissioner disobeys the order of the county superintendent, he or she is guilty of a petty offense, and subject to removal from office.
