Have You Heard?
Illinois will begin using photo radar in highway/tollway work zones in July.
One mile per hour over the speed limit and the machine will get you a nice $375.00 ticket in the mail.
Beginning July 1st the State of Illinois will begin using the speed cameras in areas designated as “Work Zones” on major highways/tollways. Anyone caught by these devices will be mailed a $375.00 ticket for the FIRST offense.The SECOND offense will cost $1000 and comes with a 90 day suspension. Drivers will also receive demerit points against their license, which allow insurance companies to raise rates.
This is the harshest penalty structure ever set for a government unit involving PHOTO speen enforcement. The State has two camera vans on line issuing tickets 24/7 in work zones with speed limits lowered to 45MPH. Photos of both driver and license plates are taken.
Be careful, drive safely…..slow down. Imagine Peace.
