Illinois Truck Drivers To Get Moving Faster On Interstates

The Illinois truckers were restricted to drive at a speed of 55-miles-per-hour on rural interstates but recently the Illinois Department of Transportation has decided to increase the limit 65-miles-per-hour at the beginning of next year.

The change in the speed limit will now let them travel at the same speed as other drivers and it also helps them to reach their destination earlier.

Transportation Department spokesman Paris Ervin said the workers will start removing and modifying the old speed limit signs during the week of January 4th and he also said that this would cost about $75,000.

The Enforcement of the new speed limit for truckers begins from Jan. In order to avoid confusion the Illinois State Police has asked state transportation department to wait to change the speed limit signs until after that date.
