FYI-Illinois driving information

This one is actual…click on the link for the State to read more!



Info on new driving enforcement in Illinois.

Ouch!


Illinois will begin using photo radar in freeway work zones starting in Jul y.
Beginning in July the State of Illinois will use speed cameras in areas designated as 'Work Zones ' on major freeways. Anyone caught by these devices will be mailed a $375.00 ticket for the FIRST offense, but the SECOND offense will cost $ 1000.00 and comes with a 90-Day suspension.

Drivers will also receive demerit points against their license, which allows insurance companies to raise their rates.

This represents the harshest penalty structure yet for a city or state using PHOTO endorsements. The State will begin with TWO camera vans issuing tickets in work zones with speed limits lowered to 45 MPH.


Photographs of both the Driver's face and License plate are taken.

Pass this on to everyone you know.

Considering it's almost memorial day weekend, you can bet enforcement will be out in full effect. For now, even the weather forecast calls for warm temps and sunny skies. Good weekend to take a leisurely ride I suppose.
