Illinois State Police to conduct alcohol, roadside safety checks
PECATONICA, Ill. — The Illinois State Police, District 16, will conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement Act (ACE) patrols in Winnebago County during the Labor Day Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign, which runs from Aug. 19 through Sept. 5, according to Lt. Martin Zamudio.
The A.C.E. patrols allow the Illinois State Police to target an area with saturation patrols that focus on preventing, detecting, and taking enforcement action in response to violations associated with impaired driving and illegal transportation or consumption of alcohol and other drugs. A.C.E. patrols are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.
The A.C.E. patrols are funded through a grant from the United States Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The grant is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
Roadside safety checks
During the same time period, the Illinois State Police, District 16, will conduct Roadside Safety Checks. Officers working these details will be watching for drivers who are operating unsafe vehicles, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages, or driving under the influence. Safety checks are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.
The Roadside Safety Check is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The grant is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
