Speed Awareness Day is July 26. The Batavia Police Department is collaborating with agencies statewide to promote safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists through education and enforcement. In Illinois in 2015, excess speed was responsible for 34.2% of all fatal crashes. That's 369 deaths per year, or line life every 23.7 hours. It's up to all of us to be better aware of the effects of speed on the roads.
