    Anyone notice an increase in patrols and pull overs by Illinois State Police? Seen it happing here. Never have I seen so many trucks pulled over at nite or early morning hours. Looks like a money grab to help pay for the immgrets coming in. Noticed it at the county level as well(multiple counties). Anybody have connections with ISP what's the really story? Really started to notice it when Illinois governor called out Texas governor. FYI I'm in the red part of Illinois not the blue part.

    Most trucks speed regardless of road conditions. Maybe they get tired of standing in the cold for hours on end at accident scenes .. handing out some tickets slows people down and brings in some revenue.

    as far as I know speed limit is nonexistent in Chicagoland...neither for regular cars or semis , every time on any highway at any time of the day trucks flying faster than regular cars ...I was coming back to northern suburb of Chicago Friday at 10pm on 294 ( construction speed limit 45 ) I was the slowest truck at 60mph ...seen other trucks flying by at probably 75mph or more ...it's sad and dangerous
