Summary
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that in a county having a population of 3,000,000 or more, the county sheriff shall establish with other law enforcement agencies a vehicle theft hotline to facilitate the location of stolen vehicles via their installed existing global positioning systems, collaborate with vehicle manufacturers and dealers to provide information and assistance to law enforcement officers in the investigation of vehicle theft, and ensure that consumers are provided with information concerning the hotline and any new or used vehicle manufactured with a global positioning system by publishing the information in a conspicuous location on the county sheriff's website. Provides that the manufacturer of any vehicle sold in this State shall establish a hotline available to State, county, and local law enforcement agencies exclusively for the purposes of law enforcement information sharing and the electronic tracking of vehicles stolen in vehicular hijacking incidents or that have been used in the commission of kidnapping, aggravated battery with a firearm, attempted homicide, or homicide. Provides that the manufacturer's hotline shall relay vehicle location information, including real-time vehicle location information whenever possible, to the 9-1-1 call center or designated dispatch center for the responding agency, to the best of the manufacturer's technical capability. Requires State, county, and local law enforcement agencies to use their respective 9-1-1 system call centers or designated dispatch centers for the purpose of verification of law enforcement officers' identities and bona fide incident report numbers related to incidents. Requires manufacturers to prepare written statements detailing tracking and disabling system capabilities and make them available to State, county, and local law enforcement agencies upon request. Requires that, if a vehicle is not subscribed to the manufacturer's tracking service, the manufacturer of any vehicle sold in this State shall waive all fees associated with initiating, renewing, reestablishing, or maintaining the location, disabling, or alert service with which the vehicle is equipped during a law enforcement response or investigation of specified offenses. House Floor Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that the county sheriff shall collaborate with vehicle manufacturers, dealers, and vehicle location vendors to provide information and assistance to law enforcement officers in the investigation of a vehicular hijacking or kidnapping incident and ensure that consumers are provided with information concerning the hotline, new or used vehicles manufactured with stolen vehicle locator capabilities, and how consumers can activate stolen vehicle locator services by publishing the information in a conspicuous location on the county sheriff's website. Provides that, if a vehicle is equipped with functioning vehicle location tracking capability, but the capability is not currently activated, the manufacturer or the vehicle location vendor, shall waive all fees associated with initiating, renewing, reestablishing, or maintaining the vehicle location service the vehicle is equipped with during the investigation of the vehicle being stolen in a vehicular hijacking incident or being used in the commission of kidnapping incident when law enforcement has confirmed that the situation involves a clear and present danger of death or great bodily harm to persons and requires disclosure of vehicle location information without delay. Provides that there shall be no cause of action or liability under the laws of this State for a vehicle manufacturer, its subsidiaries, or vendors, or any employee, officer, director, representatives, or contractor of the manufacturer, subsidiary, or vendor, that provides, or in good faith attempts to provide, information or assistance to a law enforcement agency, 9-1-1 call center, or designated dispatch center. Senate Committee Amendment No. 1 Adds reference to: 725 ILCS 168/15 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes: Provides that a manufacturer or vehicle location vendor shall relay vehicle location information to the best of their technical capabilities when: the 9-1-1 call center or designated dispatch center or responding law enforcement official provides adequate verification of their identity as a law enforcement officer and the identity of the responding law enforcement official to the manufacturer or the vehicle location vendor; and the responding law enforcement officials certifies to the manufacturer or the vehicle location vendor that the situation involves a clear and present danger of death or great bodily harm to persons resulting from a vehicular hijacking or kidnapping incident.
