New Illinois Speeding Laws -Yikes!

Please Read this:

Putting the pedal to the metal will no longer result in just a speeding ticket, thanks to a new Illinois law which goes into effect January 1 that targets people driving 100 miles per hour or faster.

* The new law has two important parts: It makes speeding in excess of 30 miles per hour a Class B Misdemeanor with a penalty of up to six months in jail and a $1,500 fine.
* It also denies court supervision for aggravated speeding.

Driving over 40 miles per hour or more over the limit remains a Class A Misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine of $2,500.

"When you are going 40 miles above the speed limit, you fall into the category of being a potential killer," said Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.
