My name is Joshua. I was pulled over tonight on my motorcycle because I had my daughter on the back in (central) IL. She is 6 years old. She had a helmet and glasses on. She is also tall enough for her feet to touch the foot pegs. He told me that kids under 16 are not allowed on motorcycles. I referred him to your article from July 29, 2006 and he told me that that was one opinion of the law. He didn't give me a ticket, but I wanted to know if you had the state code for motorcycles that states no age restrictions in Illinois.
--I have an update of my situation. The commanding offficer agreeded with the police officer that pulled me over. I had found the state code of 625 IlCS 5/12 that states that motorcycles are exempt from saftey belts. After looking it up he agreed with that. Then he was saying that kids 8 and under couldn't ride because of the Child Saftey Restraint law. I thought that motorcycles were exempt from that law also, but I can't find where it says that. Is motorcycles exempt from that law, and if so where does it say that.
Thank you for your time,
