Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 15. Participation in the Roadside Memorial program.
    (a) A qualified relative of a victim may make a request for the installation of a memorial marker in a supporting jurisdiction using an application developed by the supporting jurisdiction. The supporting jurisdiction shall have sole responsibility for determining whether a request for a DUI memorial marker is rejected or accepted.
    (b) An application for a DUI memorial marker may be submitted by a qualified relative with regard to any crash that occurred on or after January 1, 1990.
    (c) If there is any opposition to the placement of a DUI memorial marker by any qualified relative of any decedent involved in the crash, the supporting jurisdiction shall deny the request.
    (d) The supporting jurisdiction shall deny the request or, if a DUI memorial marker has already been installed, may remove the marker, if the qualified relative has provided false or misleading information in the application.
    (e) The qualified relative shall agree not to place or encourage the placement of flowers, pictures, or other items at the crash site.
    (f) A DUI memorial marker shall not be erected for a deceased driver involved in a fatal crash who is shown by toxicology reports to have been in violation of State DUI law, unless the next of kin of any other victim or victims killed in the crash consent in writing to the erection of the memorial marker.
