Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides the maximum speed limit outside an urban district for any vehicle is (1) 70 miles per hour on any interstate highway; (2) 70 miles per hour for all or part of highways that are designated by the Department of Transportation, have at least 4 lanes of traffic, and have a separation between the roadways moving in opposite directions; and (3) 65 miles per hour for all other highways, roads, and streets. Provides that the counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will may adopt ordinances establishing speed limits lower than these speeds. Permits the Department of Transportation and Toll Highway Authority to alter speed limits up to the new maximum speed limit (rather than up to 65 miles per hour).

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
625 ILCS 5/1-187.001
625 ILCS 5/11-601.5

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Reinstates substantially similar provisions. Adds Madison and St. Clair counties to the list of counties that may opt out of the increased speed limits. Adds a reduction in the speed required in excess of the legal speed limit to constitute a serious traffic violation for purposes of the Illinois Vehicle Code from 30 MPH or more above the legal speed limit to 26 MPH or more. Alters the change made in the maximum speed limit outside an urban district for any vehicle from 70 miles per hour to 65 MPH for all or part of highways that are designated by the Department, have at least 4 lanes of traffic, and have a separation between the roadways moving in opposite directions; and from 65 miles per hour to 55 MPH for all other highways, roads, and streets. Adds provision reducing by 5 MPH the thresholds for a Class B or Class A misdemeanor speeding violation.
