This coming Wednesday will be the third annual “Speed Awareness Day.”
According to Central Illinois Proud:
During the day of awareness, motorists can expect to see and increase in police presence. The Illinois State Police is taking a proactive approach to promote safety for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists through enforcement and education.
Pretty much every police department, from Addison to Zion will ramping up their speed enforcement on Wednesday. So don’t say that I didn’t warn you.
And as a further reminder, driving 26-34 miles per hour over the speed limit is a Class B misdemeanor, and 35 miles or over is a Class A misdemeanor.
Please slow down.
