Photo Radar Enforcement
Illinois will begin using photo radar in freeway work zones
starting in July
Beginning in July the State of Illinois will use speed cameras in
areas designated as 'Work Zones'
on major freeways. Anyone caught by these devices will be mailed a
$375.00 ticket for the FIRST
offense, but the SECOND offense will cost $1000.00 and comes
with a 90-Day suspension.
Drivers will also receive demerit points against their
which allows insurance companies to raise their rates.
This represents the harshest penalty structure yet for a city or
PHOTO enforcements. The State will begin with TWO camera vans
issuing tickets in
work zones with speed limits lowered to 45 MPH.
Photographs of both the Driver's face and License plate are taken.
