Description

A WMAQ-TV investigation reveals that state legislators routinely speed on Interstate 55 -- and the state police routinely ignore it. Of the 185,000 speeding tickets issued last year, not one went to state legislators, despite the fact that WMAQ-TV reporters clocked some of them driving well over 20 miles over the 65 mile per hour speed limit on I-55.
