Speeding in Illinois Will Cost You
If you are driving in Illinois this summer, you should keep an eye on your speedometer, especially in construction zones. The Illinois Department of Transportation is implementing tough new penalties for speeding above the construction zone's posted 45 miles per hour limit -- and using cameras to catch offenders.
If you are caught on camera or by state troopers, you will get a $375 ticket. And if you are caught again, you can expect to pay a $1,000 fine and lose your license for 90 days. In addition to the hefty fines, you will get demerit points on your license, which probably will result in an increase in your insurance rates.
Obeying posted speed limits is only one way you can help control your car insurance costs. For additional help with your insurance questions, contact us at 847-572-0800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
