Illinois State Trooper Issues Over 5,000 Speeding Tickets in 12 Years

Illinois State Trooper Jason Heinzl has been on the force for 12 years and has issued more speeding tickets than any other State Trooper. His total is an astonishing 5,005 tickets. He has issued several speeding tickets to drivers going 5 mph or less over the speed limit, but also is given credit for ticketing a motorcyclist who was driving 182 mph, the fastest motorist ever caught in Illinois. Cars going over 80 mph and trucks exceeding 70 mph are the main focus of the tickets issued by State Trooper Heinzl.

Some tips to avoid a speeding ticket are being extra vigilant on Saturdays and Sundays, during morning rush hour, and between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. These days and hours are primetime for police to stop and ticket drivers. Holidays such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are peak times as well.
