A bill is on Gov Quinn’s desk to increase the speed limit to 70; it passed the senate and house and awaits his signature.
One caller this morning said this: “We are so bankrupt in this state… how are we going to pay for all the new signs? They all have to be replaced!”
That is why I advocate a speed limit of 85. It would be cheaper to get a sharpie and change the ’6′ to an ’8,’ just like kids used to change D’s to B’s on their report cards.
