Plans to enforce Speed Awareness Day


ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Be careful on the roads Wednesday because police will be out in full force. State police are teaming up with agencies across the state to keep drivers from speeding.

Wednesday is the fourth annual Speed Awareness Day. The goal is to educate through enforcement. There will be more troopers on patrol than normal. In 2017, speeding was the cause of more than 40% of traffic deaths in the state.
