State Lawmakers Proposing Increased Speed Limit on Illinois Interstates

A new bill being considered would increase the maximum speed limit on state highways from 70 to 75 miles-per-hour.

Some supporters of the change suggest it only apply to rural parts of the state.

The Triple-A auto club is against the increased speed limit, saying it would lead to more crashes.

Others suggest it would actually stop people from going even faster along the interstates.
