Rt. 30 Speeders Target of Next Wednesday's Awareness Day

The primary emphasis of Speed Awareness Day will be the enforcement of laws associated with the posted speed limits along Route 30.

Local police departments are asking drivers to help make the roads safer for themselves, other motorists and pedestrians by always obeying the speed when travelling on Route 30.

During the Speed Awareness Day set for Wednesday, Aug. 8, more than a dozen police departments will be out in force along Route 30 to educate motorists through both enforcement and education.

The event is held in conjunction with Families Against Chronic Excessive Speeding, a nonprofit group dedicated to educating the public to the dangers of speeding.

Participating police departments include:

  • Crest Hill Police Department
  • Illinois State Police Department
  • Joliet Police Department
  • Kendall County Sheriff’s Department
  • Montgomery Police Department
  • Will County Sheriff’s Department

The primary emphasis of Speed Awareness Day will be the enforcement of laws associated with the posted speed limits along Route 30. A secondary emphasis will be placed on commercial motor vehicle enforcement along with enforcement of the laws associated with highway railroad grade crossings in close proximity to Route 30.

Agreed Mom. All the way. Ill mannered, tailgating, cell phone/texting, habitual speeders (and I dont mean five over its more like 15-20 over), red light runners. Mayberry? Hardly that so called Plainfield Resident. (transplant). If this were Mayberry people would know common courtesy, have manners. They would actually obey speed limits, respect local law enforcement as well as their fellow citizens. You people that have moved here and continue to gripe about these matters can load up the giant suv and get out. Heres revelation for ya. Obey the traffic rules. Very simple.

yes, adults, worse than Rt. 30, i believe is Stewart and Ridge Rds. for speeding and driving down the center of the road, especially at peak times and on cells phones most always! never seen police on these roads, and roads so narrow, wouldn't even believe have a place to watch!

There are about 100 "Speed Kills" signs posted along Rt 30 between 127th and 135th.
