Quinn Raises Speed Limit for Semi-Trucks

Semi-truck drivers will now be allowed to travel just as fast as the rest of us. Governor Quinn raised the speed limit for trucks to 65-miles per hour on four lane highways outside the Chicagoland area.

The law also states clearance lamps only needs to be used by commercial vehicles which means smaller cars don't need them when hauling items like a lawn mower.
