We all dislike the extra amount of time that traveling through a construction zone can add to our commute. The speed limit is lower than usual and you might be in a hurry. You may think that as long as workers are not present, there is no problem with driving over the posted construction zone speeding limit. WRONG!! Speeding through one of these zones in IL can have terrible consequences.
If you are convicted of speeding in a construction zone, the minimum fine is $375.00. 2 or more of these violations in a 24-month period and you will be facing a $1,000.00 fine in addition to losing your license for 90 days. It is also likely that your insurance premiums will increase if you are convicted of this offense.
