Illinois Bill Proposes New Vehicle Storage Requirements

A new House Bill (HB 6169) has been introduced in Illinois that would require new vehicle storage requirements.

The legislature would require vehicle storage providers to send a certified letter that outlines their rates to the vehicle lienholder, the entity that leased the vehicle or gave the driver a loan to buy the vehicle, before imposing fees. The bill also states that the lienholder must be given the opportunity to inspect the vehicle on the storage premises.

The Automotive Service Associate said it opposes the new legislature.

According to the association, the responsibility for identifying the lienholder would fall to the Illinois secretary of state, and would cause an increased cycle time for shops. This increase would cause unnecessary paperwork and record keeping burdens, ASA said.

The association also said the bill fails to address the problem of holding a negligent vehicle owner responsible for his or her vehicle and that “state government infrastructure is not in place to perform the required duties.”
