Adams County Sheriff’s Office to motorists: Speeding catches up with you

Adams County Sheriff's Department

ADAMS COUNTY, Ill. — As millions of travelers hit the road for summer vacations, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office is joining with the Illinois Department of Transportation and Illinois State Police to urge motorists to stop seeding and help ensure everyone reaches their destinations safely.

In a press release, Sgt. Jake McMahon said, “Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in careless and risky driving. No matter how safe of a driver you think you may be, speeding is dangerous. Speed limits aren’t a suggestion. They are the law.”

Drivers can expect a ticket from the Adams County Sheriff’s Office if they are spotted speeding. Stepped-up patrols will be seen throughout Adams County and the state July 6-31.

The speed enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by IDOT.
