I'm pretty handy with reading statutes and I have a question for anyone who may be able to help.
I understand that taxicabs have to be a certain age (usually no more than 4 years old) and I also understand that livery vehicles must be "clean, safe" etc. I noticed that the list of approved vehicles includes "taxi or livery" vehicles and lists Lincoln Town cars etc but not limousines.
Knowing that the city classifies vehicles as either 1) cars or 2) sightseeing vehicles/bus, I assume that a 10 passenger limo is a sightseeing bus and a Lincoln Town car is a car, but what is a limo.
As I read the statute it appears that no limos are legal in the city of Chicago as they don't appear on the approved vehicle list.
My question is this: what is the acceptable age/miles on a new limousine?
Please help! I'd really appreciate it. The health care bill is easier to figure out than this!
