The intent of the city council of the City of Chicago in enacting this chapter is to enhance the safety of consumers using remote service terminals in the City of Chicago without discouraging the placement of remote service terminals in locations convenient to consumers' homes and work places. Because decisions concerning safety at remote service terminals are inherently subjective, the standard of care applicable to the operators of remote service terminals is compliance with the objective standards and information requirements of this chapter.
It is not the intent of the city council of the City of Chicago in enacting this chapter to impose a duty to relocate or modify remote service terminals upon the occurrence of a particular event or circumstance, but rather to establish a means for the evaluation of all remote service terminals as provided in this chapter.
A violation of the provisions of this chapter will not constitute negligence per se. Substantial compliance with the objective standards and information requirements of this chapter is prima facie evidence that the operator of the remote service terminal in question has provided adequate measures for the safety of users of the remote service terminal.
