Illinois Speed Limits

"On April 23, the Senate approved legislation I sponsored with Transportation Committee Chairman Martin Sandoval (D-Cicero) that will increase Illinois’ speed limit to 70 miles per hour (mph) on tollways and interstate highways. This change will bring Illinois in line with most of the rest of the country. The interstates were designed for a higher rate of speed, and currently, there are 34 states with speed limits of 70 mph or higher. All of Illinois’ neighboring states, except Wisconsin, have speed limits of 70 mph. Fifteen states have speed limits of 75 mph and one state has a speed limit of 85 mph." - Illinois State Senator Oberweis
