With the recent increase in speed limits in the area, the Illinois State Police are reminding drivers to be safe and check their speeds. Excessive speeding is dangerous, and can lead to bad crashes, and the drivers receiving large tickets.
Sean Ramsey with the Illinois State Police says with the recent increase in the speed limits on area roadways, the ISP is seeing speeders hitting speeds in the triple digits.
Ramsey also wants drivers to remember that driving in of itself is a dangerous activity, and they should keep their focus on getting from Point A to Point B.
Ramsey appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
