Chicago Motorcyclist Caught Speeding 127MPH Over the Limit

Rodney Jones, 39, may have made it from Des Plaines to the Magnificent Mile on his Motorcycle in seven minutes if he hadn’t been stopped by Illinois State Trooper Jason Heinzl.

Jones is the fastest speeding ticket ever recorded in the Chicago area and possibly in the State of Illinois. Jones received a citation for going 182 mph in 55 mph zone with “moderate” traffic. Heinzl was in dismay when he looked at the radar but even more surprised that Jones had stopped when he pulled him over.

When asked why he didn’t run, Jones responded, “I wasn’t in the mood to run. If I’d wanted to run, I’d have run.”

Jones, who rides with the Chicago RedLiners motorcycle club, was fined $375 and ordered to purchase high-risk insurance.

The second fastest speeder ever caught was doing 150 mph on I-94. Illinois has increased the penalty for aggravated speeding, a new law that went into effect this past January. Anyone caught speeding 31 or more over the limit faces a Class B Misdemeanor. Anyone caught speeding 40 mph or more over the limit faces a Class A Misdemeanor (up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine).

The big catch: 355 pounder going 182 mph, www.suntimes.com, June 13, 2011

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
