A lot of people want to know when the car that killed a woman and her three children on a Sunday morning last year can be left alone, but some people are even more concerned about the fact that the vehicle they are using to bury them can’t be towed to a parking lot to be unloaded or disposed of.
A new law passed by the Illinois legislature in 2018 requires that vehicles that are used in an accident, such as a tractor trailer or utility trailer, must be unloaded in a safe location by a qualified tow truck.
The bill has not yet been fully implemented, but the new law will likely help save lives by making it much easier for the families of the victims to be allowed to retrieve their bodies.
“It’s just a matter of when the truck is going to be able to go, but I think we’re going to see a lot more of this,” said John Pappas, a funeral director who is president of the Illinois State Transportation Board.
“We’re talking about the lives of the people that are going to end up in these vehicles.
It’s just really the responsibility of the driver.
They’re the one who’s responsible for the vehicle.”
According to a report by the State Transportation Commission, only about 10 percent of vehicles in Illinois are licensed to be used for funeral services.
The majority of the time, the vehicles are not used in accidents that are the responsibility the driver of the vehicle.
It was just one of the ways in which the state was addressing the increasing demand for funeral vehicles, Pappis said.
The new law would allow for the storage of the funeral vehicle in a place that can be readily accessed and the truck could be unloaded at a nearby location to be placed at the scene of an accident.
The funeral vehicle could also be left in the car at a location that is convenient to a family member, such an emergency room or the funeral home, he said.
Pappas said it was not unusual for a funeral home to have to pay $2,500 to retrieve a funeral vehicle from a storage facility, which is a significant cost.
According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, there are about 2,000 funeral vehicles in the state.
The commission estimates that about 3,400 funeral vehicles are used every year for funeral homes and funeral homes alone.
While there is no indication that the new rule will save lives, it is an important step in the right direction, said State Rep. Chris Taylor, R-Chicago.
The state has a history of working with funeral homes to provide funeral services, and the legislature has shown a willingness to support those efforts, Taylor said.
“I think it’s just another step in a very long and difficult road, but we’re hopeful it will come to fruition,” Taylor said in a statement.
The Illinois Department, which oversees funeral services in the State of Illinois, said it is reviewing the bill and would not comment on the specifics of the legislation until it receives a copy of the law.
