The Weekend Desk Report

"Nearly 90 percent of interstate highway miles in Illinois will have 70-mph speed limits starting Wednesday, state transportation officials announced Friday, but the sponsor of the law raising the limits is upset almost all existing posted speeds in the Chicago area will remain unchanged and he vowed to push for them to be higher," the Tribune reports.

"'It's unacceptable,' said State. Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, who sponsored the bill that Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law in August. Oberweis said he was upset that IDOT, which had the authority to draw up the speed limit map, left unchanged the 55-mph speed limit across virtually all of the Chicago region. 'They're putting law-abiding citizens into danger.'"

To avert disaster, Oberweis said he'd hire a fleet of helicopters to evacuate anyone who felt they couldn't get out of the scary city fast enough.
