9-100-130  Driver's license suspension.
   (a)   When a person has failed to pay any fine or penalty due and owing pursuant to this chapter on ten or more parking, standing, or compliance violations, or five or more automated traffic law enforcement system or automated speed enforcement system violations, or combination thereof, the traffic compliance administrator shall cause a notice of impending driver’s license suspension to be sent, in accordance with Section 9-100-050(f). The notice shall state that failure to pay the amount owing within 45 days of the date of the notice may result in the city notifying the Secretary of State that the person is eligible for initiation of suspension proceedings pursuant to Section 6-306.5 of the Illinois Vehicle Code.
   (b)   If a person sent a notice pursuant to subsection (a) fails to pay the amount owing within the time stated on the notice, the traffic compliance administrator may file with the Secretary of State a certified report, in accordance with Section 6-306.5(c) of the Illinois Vehicle Code, that the person is eligible for initiation of suspension proceedings. The traffic compliance administrator shall assess a $20.00 filing fee against the person named in the certified report to reimburse the city for the expense of preparing and filing the certified report.
   (c)   A person named in a certified report filed pursuant to subsection (b) may, within 21 days of the date of the notice sent by the Secretary of State pursuant to Section 6-306.5(b) of the Illinois Vehicle Code, file with the traffic compliance administrator a written statement and supporting documentation to challenge the report; provided, however, the grounds for such challenge shall be limited to: (1) the person was not the owner or lessee of the vehicle or vehicles receiving the prerequisite number of violations on the date or dates such notices were issued; or (2) the person already paid the fine and penalty for the prerequisite number of violations indicated on the report. The traffic compliance administrator shall send notice of the decision on the challenge of the report after receipt thereof.
   (d)   If a person named in a certified report has paid the previously reported fine or penalty or if the report is determined by the traffic compliance administrator to be in error, or if the person has entered into a payment plan pursuant to which the city has agreed to terminate the suspension, the traffic compliance administrator shall notify the Secretary of State in accordance with Section 6-306.5(d) of the Illinois Vehicle Code. A certified copy of such notification shall be given, upon request and at no charge, to the person named therein. Whenever any person is more than 14 days in default of a payment plan pursuant to which a suspension has been terminated, the traffic compliance administrator shall send a certified report to the Secretary of State in accordance with Section 6-306.5 of the Illinois Vehicle Code.
