“The ISP has zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois,” according to the release. “Officers working this detail will be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages or driving under the influence.”
Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in about 40 percent of all fatal crashes. Illinois Roadside safety checks are designed to help keep roads safe, and the project is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Roadside safety checks are effective tools for generating voluntary compliance by the motoring public. The potential to come across these checks encourages motorists to arrange designated drivers, keep their consumption of alcohol within the allowable limits, or not drive a motor vehicle after drinking. Safety checks are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.
State Police working Illinois Roadside Safety Checks will also be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, and transporting open alcoholic beverages.
