INDIANAPOLIS (July, 9, 2015) - When we went through all of the citations issued last year on I-465, we found out drivers were twice as likely to be pulled over on the west side of the loop. But when we turned our attention to I-69, we didn’t find any drastic disparities.

“I've always been pulled over in the Fishers area,” said driver Katey Sandleben.

There is one hotspot, between 82nd Street and 96th Street, but that is also part of the heaviest traveled stretch. 
Something interesting to note—tickets issued on I-69 were for higher speeds than tickets issued on other interstates around Indianapolis.

“What we're looking for is reckless speeding, reckless driving, going too fast. 75, 85, 90 miles per hour,” said Sgt. Rich Myers, Indiana State Police.

We’ve heard mixed opinions about whether the speed limit should be higher.

“You're always going to have people who are trying to push the limit. So I think if it were higher you're still going to have people going even faster,” said Sandleben.

“Ultimately the public, through the legislature process, is the ones that call for what speed limits they want to see, said Sgt. Myers.
