STATELINE NEWS -- An Illinois state Senator earlier this month introduced a bill to increase the speed limit to 75 mph on many of the state’s interstates as well as make 60 the maximum speed limit on rural highways.
State Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-North Aurora, in 2014 also pushed Illinois to become the 37th state to push its speed limit to 70.
The bill increased the speed limit to 75 on Interstate 355, Interstate 80 and every interstate west of Interstate 355 and south of Interstate 80.
It also would push the maximum speed outside an urban district to 60 on all highways, roads and streets that do not have four or more lanes of traffic and are not interstate highways.
