State Police to conduct roadside safety checks this weekend, April 27-28
Online Staff Report
PECATONICA, Ill. — Illinois State Police (ISP), District 16, will conduct a Roadside Safety Check (RSC) in Winnebago County this weekend (April 27-28), according to Captain Jeff Bain. Troopers will work in cooperation with officers from the Rockford Police Department.
The ISP has zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois. 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 (DUI).
Alcohol and drug impairment is a significant factor in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Road safety checks are designed to keep roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.
This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
