Section 1. This Act is dedicated to the memory of

marked lanes for traffic the following rules in addition to all
others consistent herewith shall apply.

entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from such
lane until the driver has first ascertained that such movement
can be made with safety.
(b) Upon a roadway which is divided into 3 lanes and
provides for two-way movement of traffic, a vehicle shall not
be driven in the center lane except when overtaking and passing
another vehicle traveling in the same direction when such
center lane is clear of traffic within a safe distance, or in
preparation for making a left turn or where such center lane is
at the time allocated exclusively to traffic moving in the same
direction that the vehicle is proceeding and such allocation is
designated by official traffic control devices.
(c) Official traffic control devices may be erected
directing specific traffic to use a designated lane or
designating those lanes to be used by traffic moving in a
particular direction regardless of the center of the roadway
and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such
device. On multi-lane controlled access highways with 3 or more
lanes in one direction or on any multi-laned highway with 2 or
more lanes in one direction, the Department may designate lanes
of traffic to be used by different types of motor vehicles.
Drivers must obey lane designation signing except when it is
necessary to use a different lane to make a turning maneuver.
(d) Official traffic control devices may be installed
prohibiting the changing of lanes on sections of roadway and
drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such

(625 ILCS 5/11-907) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 11-907)
Sec. 11-907. Operation of vehicles and streetcars on
approach of authorized emergency vehicles.
(a) Upon the immediate approach of an authorized emergency
vehicle making use of audible and visual signals meeting the
requirements of this Code or a police vehicle properly and
lawfully making use of an audible or visual signal:
(1) the driver of every other vehicle shall yield the
right-of-way and shall immediately drive to a position
parallel to, and as close as possible to, the right-hand
edge or curb of the highway clear of any intersection and
shall, if necessary to permit the safe passage of the
emergency vehicle, stop and remain in such position until
the authorized emergency vehicle has passed, unless
otherwise directed by a police officer; and
(2) the operator of every streetcar shall immediately
stop such car clear of any intersection and keep it in such
position until the authorized emergency vehicle has
passed, unless otherwise directed by a police officer.
(b) This Section shall not operate to relieve the driver of
an authorized emergency vehicle from the duty to drive with due
regard for the safety of all persons using the highway.
(c) Upon approaching a stationary authorized emergency
vehicle, when the authorized emergency vehicle is giving a
signal by displaying alternately flashing red, red and white,
blue, or red and blue lights or amber or yellow warning lights,
a person who drives an approaching vehicle shall:
(1) proceeding with due caution, yield the
right-of-way by making a lane change into a lane not
adjacent to that of the authorized emergency vehicle, if
possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions,
if on a highway having at least 4 lanes with not less than
2 lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching

is engaged in his or her official duties.

fine of not less than $750 or more than $10,000 for a second or
subsequent violation not less than $100 or more than $10,000.
It is a factor in aggravation if the person committed the
offense while in violation of Section 11-501 of this Code.
Imposition of the penalties authorized by this subsection (d)
for a violation of subsection (c) of this Section that results
in the death of another person does not preclude imposition of
appropriate additional civil or criminal penalties. A person
who violates subsection (c) and the violation results in damage
to another vehicle commits a Class A misdemeanor. A person who
violates subsection (c) and the violation results in the injury
or death of another person commits a Class 4 felony.

privileges shall be suspended for a fixed period of not less
than 90 days and not more than one year.

results in injury to another person, in addition to any other
penalty imposed, the person's driving privileges shall be
suspended for a fixed period of not less than 180 days and not
more than 2 years.

results in the death of another person, in addition to any
other penalty imposed, the person's driving privileges shall be

of a judgment entered against a person under subsection (c) of
this Section:

appropriate mandatory period.

State treasury. Subject to appropriation by the General
Assembly and approval by the Director, the Director of the
State Police shall use all moneys in the Scott's Law Fund in
the Department's discretion to fund the production of materials
to educate drivers on approaching stationary authorized
emergency vehicles, to hire off-duty Department of State Police
for enforcement of this Section, and for other law enforcement
purposes the Director deems necessary in these efforts.
(j) For violations of this Section issued by a county or
municipal police officer, the assessment shall be deposited
into the county's or municipality's Transportation Safety
Highway Hire-back Fund. The county shall use the moneys in its
Transportation Safety Highway Hire-back Fund to hire off-duty
county police officers to monitor construction or maintenance
zones in that county on highways other than interstate
highways. The county, in its discretion, may also use a portion
of the moneys in its Transportation Safety Highway Hire-back
Fund to purchase equipment for county law enforcement and fund

Sec. 5-6-1. Sentences of probation and of conditional
discharge and disposition of supervision. The General Assembly

system must compel compliance with the conditions of probation
by responding to violations with swift, certain and fair
punishments and intermediate sanctions. The Chief Judge of each

sanctions for violations of the terms and conditions of a
sentence of probation, conditional discharge or disposition of
supervision.
(a) Except where specifically prohibited by other
provisions of this Code, the court shall impose a sentence of
probation or conditional discharge upon an offender unless,
having regard to the nature and circumstance of the offense,
and to the history, character and condition of the offender,
the court is of the opinion that:

necessary for the protection of the public; or
(2) probation or conditional discharge would deprecate
the seriousness of the offender's conduct and would be
inconsistent with the ends of justice; or

consecutive probation when an offender has been admitted
into a drug court program under Section 20 of the Drug
Court Treatment Act is necessary for the protection of the
public and for the rehabilitation of the offender.

probation, conditional discharge, or supervision, that the
probation agency may invoke any sanction from the list of
intermediate sanctions adopted by the chief judge of the

discharge for an offense if the court is of the opinion that

nor of probation supervision is appropriate.

(c) The court may, upon a plea of guilty or a stipulation
by the defendant of the facts supporting the charge or a

opinion that:
(1) the offender is not likely to commit further
crimes;
(2) the defendant and the public would be best served
if the defendant were not to receive a criminal record; and

(Text of Section after amendment by P.A. 100-987)
Sec. 5-6-1. Sentences of probation and of conditional
discharge and disposition of supervision. The General Assembly
finds that in order to protect the public, the criminal justice
system must compel compliance with the conditions of probation
by responding to violations with swift, certain and fair
punishments and intermediate sanctions. The Chief Judge of each
circuit shall adopt a system of structured, intermediate
sanctions for violations of the terms and conditions of a
sentence of probation, conditional discharge or disposition of
supervision.
(a) Except where specifically prohibited by other
provisions of this Code, the court shall impose a sentence of
probation or conditional discharge upon an offender unless,
having regard to the nature and circumstance of the offense,
and to the history, character and condition of the offender,
the court is of the opinion that:
(1) his imprisonment or periodic imprisonment is
necessary for the protection of the public; or
(2) probation or conditional discharge would deprecate
the seriousness of the offender's conduct and would be
inconsistent with the ends of justice; or
(3) a combination of imprisonment with concurrent or
consecutive probation when an offender has been admitted
into a drug court program under Section 20 of the Drug
Court Treatment Act is necessary for the protection of the
public and for the rehabilitation of the offender.
The court shall impose as a condition of a sentence of
probation, conditional discharge, or supervision, that the
probation agency may invoke any sanction from the list of
intermediate sanctions adopted by the chief judge of the
circuit court for violations of the terms and conditions of the
sentence of probation, conditional discharge, or supervision,
subject to the provisions of Section 5-6-4 of this Act.
(b) The court may impose a sentence of conditional
discharge for an offense if the court is of the opinion that
neither a sentence of imprisonment nor of periodic imprisonment
nor of probation supervision is appropriate.
(b-1) Subsections (a) and (b) of this Section do not apply
to a defendant charged with a misdemeanor or felony under the
Illinois Vehicle Code or reckless homicide under Section 9-3 of
the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012 if the
defendant within the past 12 months has been convicted of or
pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor or felony under the Illinois
Vehicle Code or reckless homicide under Section 9-3 of the
Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012.
(c) The court may, upon a plea of guilty or a stipulation
by the defendant of the facts supporting the charge or a
finding of guilt, defer further proceedings and the imposition
of a sentence, and enter an order for supervision of the
defendant, if the defendant is not charged with: (i) a Class A
misdemeanor, as defined by the following provisions of the
Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012: Sections
11-9.1; 12-3.2; 11-1.50 or 12-15; 26-5 or 48-1; 31-1; 31-6;
31-7; paragraphs (2) and (3) of subsection (a) of Section 21-1;
paragraph (1) through (5), (8), (10), and (11) of subsection
(a) of Section 24-1; (ii) a Class A misdemeanor violation of
Section 3.01, 3.03-1, or 4.01 of the Humane Care for Animals
Act; or (iii) a felony. If the defendant is not barred from
receiving an order for supervision as provided in this
subsection, the court may enter an order for supervision after
considering the circumstances of the offense, and the history,
character and condition of the offender, if the court is of the
opinion that:
(1) the offender is not likely to commit further
crimes;
(2) the defendant and the public would be best served
if the defendant were not to receive a criminal record; and
(3) in the best interests of justice an order of
supervision is more appropriate than a sentence otherwise
permitted under this Code.
(c-5) Subsections (a), (b), and (c) of this Section do not
apply to a defendant charged with a second or subsequent
violation of Section 6-303 of the Illinois Vehicle Code
committed while his or her driver's license, permit or
privileges were revoked because of a violation of Section 9-3
of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012,
relating to the offense of reckless homicide, or a similar
provision of a law of another state.
(d) The provisions of paragraph (c) shall not apply to a
defendant charged with violating Section 11-501 of the Illinois
Vehicle Code or a similar provision of a local ordinance when
the defendant has previously been:
(1) convicted for a violation of Section 11-501 of the
Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar provision of a local
ordinance or any similar law or ordinance of another state;
or
(2) assigned supervision for a violation of Section
11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar provision
of a local ordinance or any similar law or ordinance of
another state; or
(3) pleaded guilty to or stipulated to the facts
supporting a charge or a finding of guilty to a violation
of Section 11-503 of the Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar

ordinance of another state, and the plea or stipulation was
