New Speed Limit Law Spurs Confusion

There appears to be some confusion over the state’s new higher speed limit. 


It was widely believed that the new 70 mile-per-hour limit won’t apply to the most congested interstates near Chicago and St. Louis when it takes effect on January 1st


But the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the bill’s sponsor, State Senator Jim Oberweis, disputes that interpretation.  He says the intent of the bill was to allow faster speeds on all interstate highways, including those in Chicagoland and the Metro East.  But some local officials disagree.  It may require follow-up legislation to clear up the confusion.
