10.04.060 – Numbering system

When referring to provisions of the Illinois Vehicle Code hereinbefore adopted by reference in this chapter as provisions of the St. Charles Municipal Code, the paragraph numbering as used in the Illinois Vehicle Code shall be prefixed by the chapter heading, namely "Chapter 10.04", so that, for example, when referring to the ordinance provision for paragraph "12-500" of the Illinois Vehicle Code, that appropriate provision of the St. Charles Municipal Code would be "10.04.12-500."

The burden of proof for any offense classified as a “petty” offense or “business” offense in the provisions of the Illinois Vehicle Code adopted in this chapter shall be by a preponderance of the evidence.  Offenses classified therein as “misdemeanor” offenses shall be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
