House Bill 3927 was introduced on October 23, 2019 and assigned to the House Rules Committee. (See also HB 3909)
The synopsis of the bill:
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Repeals a Section providing
authority to use automated traffic law enforcement systems at intersections
in which cameras are used to photograph or video record a motor vehicle's
failure to stop and yield as required by traffic control signals. Imposes
limits on the power of local governments to use automated speed enforcement
systems to provide recorded images of a motor vehicle for the purpose of
recording its speed. Denies home rule powers. Amends the State Mandates Act
to require implementation without reimbursement from the State. Makes
conforming and other technical changes.
Besides the NMA’s well-documented objections to the use of automated enforcement, in the lengthy annals of corruption and fraud related to such programs, Illinois plays a particularly prominent role. That is why we support passage of HB 3927.
