ISP To Utilize Photo Speed Enforcement Van In Construction Zones

Illinois State Police District 7 (Henry, Knox, Mercer and Rock Island Counties) announces the Photo Speed Enforcement Van will be deployed during the upcoming months in local construction zones. This specialized vehicle is equipped with multiple radars and cameras to document drivers who choose to speed through the construction zone. The van is manned by a Trooper who has been trained in its operation and will monitor the van’s deployment. If a driver is cited for a speed violation, the fine starts at $375 and could increase based on the number of previous violations. The van allows for enforcement without adding the interference of a traffic stop in an already congested section of road.
