Illinois Road Work Speed Limits Are Always Enforced Despite Rumors
Even when workers aren't present, you must always obey Illinois construction zone speed restrictions.
It's the summertime in Illinois.
That means I'm going to run into road work everywhere.
Sometimes I get frustrated because I'm trying to get somewhere, the traffic is slowed down because of construction, and there's nobody working.
I've been told by a couple of friends that you don't have to obey those speed limits when workers aren't present.
That doesn't seem right to me, so I decided to look it up.
According to idot.illinois.gov,
"Workers do not have to be present to receive a speeding ticket in a work zone."
The Illinois Tollway even sent out a message on their Twitter account about it.
If you believed those rumors, now you have the facts.
