CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Starting Sunday, you may see more automated speed enforcement systems along the roads.

A new state law allows educational and park district owned recreational municipalities to install these systems nearby.

They record the vehicle's speed and images of the vehicle and license plate.

Violators could face a maximum $100 fine for speeding more than five miles and hour over the limit, plus another $100 for failure to pay on time.

The municipality will have up to 90 days to issue a written notice.

State Police say these will not be considered moving violations, so they may not affect the driver's record.
