Illinois: Bloomington, Normal Police Diverge On Approach To Speeding Tickets

Hershey Road is one of the hottest hot spots in Bloomington-Normal for speeding tickets, according to GLT analysis of citations from local police. That same analysis shows very different approaches to speeding by Bloomington Police and Normal Police.

Normal Police write a lot of tickets—over 2,600 last year, and they’re on a similar pace in 2018. That’s 10 times as many as Bloomington Police. Normal’s 2017 tally was also higher than other larger downstate metro communities such as Springfield, Peoria, and Decatur.
