Springfield, IL – Illinois State Police’s (ISP) month-long ‘Operation Fast Break’ on Interstate 57 has led to a significant number of speeding citations and warnings in an effort to improve road safety. In March 2024, officers from ISP Troops 7, 9, and 10 focused on the I-57 corridor, issuing 1,801 speeding citations and 2,521 warnings to drivers exceeding speed limits.

Aside from targeting speeders, the operation also conducted 1,385 Motor Carrier Safety Inspections and issued 52 Move Over “Scott’s Law” citations. Additionally, law enforcement efforts led to the seizure of 6 firearms and 7 arrests for driving under the influence, along with 187 citations for suspended, revoked, or nonexistent driver’s licenses.

The success of ‘Operation Fast Break’ highlights the critical need for continued enforcement actions and the increasing demand for more ISP troopers to uphold traffic safety regulations.
