Windhorst Urges Motorists to Drive Carefully on Speed Awareness Day

METROPOLIS – State Rep. Patrick Windhorst (R-Metropolis) is reminding motorists to drive with care on Speed Awareness Day 2023.

In 2021, speed was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities, killing 12,330 people. When you choose to speed you are not only endangering your own life, but the lives of others.

Let’s keep Illinois roadways safe for all by following posted speed limits, paying attention to road conditions, and allowing ample time to reach our destinations this Speed Awareness Day.
