There are more questions than answers but the gist of it is if you own a bike without a license plate in Illinois, it needs to have this ORV sticker. It is illegal to ride an unregistered bike, even on private property. Any law enforcement agency can enforce this law, including checking orv's in transport for compliance. So, the cops can finally pull you over just for having a dirtbike in your truck. They could pull you over and check your roadrace bike. DNR has the power to enter private property to check for compliance. The DNR will now have the authority to mosey on into the riding parks and tracks to write tickets, maybe even field a few complaints about noise, or note erosion problems while they're there. They are not people we want around.
My understanding is that the implementation hasn't been written yet. This law was passed to fund the IDNR and to my understanding was supported by ABATE. The fucking money from the stickers, is going to fund the enforcement.
ABATE shit the bed by supporting this bill. Nobody even knew about it until it had already passed. Out of one side of their mouths the "We are against big government and their laws" i.e. there stance on helmet laws, and the other support this piece of shit legislation granting sweeping interference and revenue generation without saying a word.
Again, the money from this program is going fund its enforcement. In most states, registration funds go to trail system funding. Not here. We're gonna use the money strictly from ORV's to fund ticket writing. Fucking great.
I suggest you politely call and write some people, I'll copy and paste some of info on who to contact.
Oh, btw. If you don't have a title for your off road bike, prepare to be fucked in the ass. If the sticker is registered to the VIN on the orv, you better have paperwork in order, and taxes paid in full, or shit is gonna get real.
Copy/Paste Info From AMA D17 site:
Sb1566: Is a very unpopular and unfair bill for all off-road enthusiasts.
As always be very polite and respectful with your phone calls
There is a very unpopular bill for off-road users that was passed in the veto session and it was the 2nd House Amendment of SB1566. The link below will give you that info.
We have a sit down meeting with the IDNR (Illinois Dept. Natural Resources) Director, Marc Miller.
He wanted this meeting in January before the rules are written for it and we would like to have it before the State Seminar so that we can inform you of the results.
At this meeting for ABATE will be "Hunter" John Harris, Stacey Rigsby, who are both very ardent members do the off-road community and Jay Hall who is into racing and off-road riding and will be there to give a businessman's point of view, Todd Vandermyde,and myself (if 5 are allowed in).
Those that are offended and opposed to this bill are asked to call Jay Curtis, Chief of Staff for Marc Miller IDNR Director and ask him to support the changes and fixes that Hunter, Stacey, and Jay have for this bill
Below are the ph #s for the office and staff as you asked for but I highly recommend the # that you use would be for for Chief of Staff and Director of Legislative Affairs, Jay Curtis (217) 785-0075.
You don't want the Director being upset with the amount of ph.calls he would be getting as he does make the decisions on the RULES and the Chief of Staff is more in tune with legislation.
