Senator Wants To Increase Illinois Speed Limit
(Springfield, IL) — A suburban state lawmakers wants to let you drive five miles-per-hour faster. State Senator Jim Oberweis is pitching a plan to increase the speed limit to 75-miles-per-hour on interstates outside of Chicago. Oberweis says most drivers already drive 75 or faster, and he says there’s no need to set a speed limit that most people ignore. Illinois increased the speed limit from 65 to 70-miles-per-hour on downstate interstates back in 2014.
