Speeding in a School Zone

Illinois law mandates a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour in school zones while children are present. The statute also requires that the government properly post signage indicating that a driver is entering a school zone. Penalties for violation of the school zone statute are harsh. The statute does not allow supervision as a sentencing alternative for convicted drivers. This rule has been strictly enforced by Illinois courts.
