  • Question for CPD Officers

    I was wondering if anyone knew the ILCS or MCC violation number for have a air freshener or rosary on your rear view mirror. I'm thinking it's (9-40-250(b) Obstruction of driver's view) but not sure. Thanks

    State law: It is subjective, and a lot of traffic officers use it as PC for a stop.
    (625 ILCS 5/12-503)
    Sec. 12-503. Windshields must be unobstructed and equipped with
    wipers.
    (a) No person shall drive a motor vehicle with any sign, poster,
    window application, reflective material, nonreflective material or
    tinted film upon the front windshield, sidewings or side windows
    immediately adjacent to each side of the driver. A nonreflective tinted
    film may be used along the uppermost portion of the windshield if such
    material does not extend more than 6 inches down from the top of the
    windshield. Nothing in this Section shall create a cause of action on
    behalf of a buyer against a dealer or manufacturer who sells a motor
    vehicle with a window which is in violation of this Section.
    (b) Nothing contained in this Section shall prohibit the use of
    nonreflective, smoked or tinted glass, nonreflective film, perforated
    window screen or other decorative window application on windows to the
    rear of the driver's seat, except that any motor vehicle with a window
    to the rear of the driver's seat treated in this manner shall be
    equipped with a side mirror on each side of the motor vehicle which are
    in conformance with Section 12-502.
    (c) No person shall drive a motor vehicle with any objects placed
    or suspended between the driver and the front windshield, rear window,
    side wings or side windows immediately adjacent to each side
    of the driver which materially obstructs the driver's view.


    I have also known officers that cited motorists for the radar detector hanging from suction cups, instead of sitting on the dash.

      Kind of a petty charge to be writing, unless you need PC for something else...just my $.02

        I would never write anyone for that unless they were a total and complete jagoff and I just wanted to add something on "Oh I see u donated to Misracordia, I'm sorry I'm going to have to write u up"

          I've never actually known anyone who wrote someone up just for that. It's good PC though to stop a suspicious vehicle. Nice Misericordia reference! I used to work there before becoming a PO!
