How fast is too fast?
PRINCETON — Motorists on certain Illinois interstates and highways could see higher speed limits in the future.
The Illinois Generally Assembly has passed Senate Bill 2356 which would increase speed limits on Illinois’ rural freeways and certain highways from 65 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour. The bill was sent on June 20 to Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk for consideration.
According to the Illinois General Assembly website, the bill would provide the maximum speed limit outside an urban district for any vehicle to be 70 miles per hour on any interstate highway, as well as on all or part of other highways designated by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The affected highways would need to have at least four lanes of traffic and have a separation between the roadways moving in opposite directions. The proposed law does have an opt-out ordinance option for urban counties.
