70 mph speed limit to take effect on Illinois interstates

December 31, 2013 1:39:03 PM PST
Starting Wednesday, drivers on some Illinois interstates will be able to indulge their need for speed without risking a ticket.

The new 70 mph speed limit will take effect on rural interstates across Illinois, but not in Chicago.

Crews will start to post new speed limit signs over the next few days, so keep an eye out when you hit the road.
