Veh Cd-Bicycles-Tort Liability


Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that in the counties of Ogle, Rock Island, Whiteside, and Winnebago, 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. Provides that the new language does not create liability for any public entity for the failure to remedy any surface condition of a highway that caused injury to a person riding a bicycle if that surface condition is not hazardous to a passenger car. Provides that, except as expressly provided by law, the new language does not impose an obligation to further improve existing highways or to maintain them to a higher standard for bicyclists. Provides that the new provisions are repealed 3 years after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Effective immediately.
