Thumbs down

!!! Three impending bills sitting on IL Gov. Blagojevich's desk. The first two need your voice of SUPPORT. The 3rd needs your voice of DISCONTENT !!!

First, contact Gov. Blagojevich's office:

Office of the Governor, 207 State House, Springfield, IL 62706

-OR (quickest)-
Call his office:
(217) 782-0244

-OR (probably least effective, but still valid)-
email him:
governor@state.il.us


The top three bills important to smart motorists in Illinois:

1) SUPPORT: HB 1186 "65 mph" bill
that would FINALLY raise the speed limit in non-urban areas in IL to 65 mph. In conjunction with HB1574 Left Lane bill, these two things would go A LONG way to start easing congestion in IL.
See: http://www.legis.state.il.us/legislation/B...ID=3&LegID=1743

2) SUPPORT: HB 1574 "Left Lane" bill
that would allow police to enforce left lane usage regulations (i.e., slower traffic keep right bill). We'll never be a Germany, but it's a start to more sane traffic flow in this godforsaken state!
See: http://www.legis.state.il.us/legislation/B...356&SessionID=3

ghead 3) OPPOSE: SB 1848 - Toll Bill
- lots of crap in it that gives more power to the IL Toll Highway Authority but the most dangerous part is the new ability for the state to collect/seize/immobilize/impound any vehicle in connection with owed tolls in connection with any other city/local/county gov't.
See: http://www.legis.state.il.us/legislation/B...961&SessionID=3

If you want to do more, then also contact the sponsors of these bills and voice your thanks or displeasure. There's little room to enjoy our Bimmers if stuck in parking-lot traffic due to irrational traffic laws and policies.

you should be protesting the whole road system, and toll system, i feel bad for you il is sooo corupt they collect so much toll money and only do road construction every twenty years, it's easy to tell when you in illinois the roads are bumpy as hell and you have to constantly stop and ay a toll or in chicago wait in traffic for half a day, i travel to chicago almost every weekend i'm in indianapolis, and i take 65 and then go west of i forget what road but as soon as you pass the sign that says welcome to illinois or whatever the road turns into a bumpy pos, you should be protesting that just my 2 cents ghead ghead

I agree... esp if you were coming in on the Skyway... that road is/was REALLY bad.
The I94 toll way north of the city heading to WI is pretty good though.. better than most. The worst roads are actually the non-toll roads in Chicago.

The worst roads I have ever driven on though were in Metro-Detroit. I cannot believe they can even collect taxes for roads in such bad shape. They should be ashamed of themselves.
