The speed enforcement van will be on display just before deployment on Interstate 57 in Kankakee County.

The system is operated through a special van operated by a state trooper. The van has a speed indicator, allowing vehicles to slow.

Speeders trip the camera radar. A photo of the vehicle, driver and license plate is taken and a ticket arrives in the mail.
