    We need speed cameras in Illinois RUN BY THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS!I’m surprised at how many people are so anxious to get to church on Sunday mornings that they are driving 70 to 75 plus mph on Route 20.

The cameras in AZ. gave you up to 7 mph over the limit and driving there was a pleasure. They have since removed them and now it’s like driving here in Illinois with pushy aggressive people who know they can get away with it.Walter DiemElgin
