State Police to conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement patrols from March 21-23
PECATONICA, Ill. — Illinois State Police (ISP) Lt. John Biffany, District 16 Commander, announced the ISP will conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement (ACE) patrols in Winnebago County March 21-23.
The ACE patrols allow the ISP 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.
Across the country, an average of one alcohol-related traffic death occurs every 51 minutes. Alcohol and drug impairment remain significant factors in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Each year in Illinois, hundreds of lives are lost in alcohol-related crashes.
Don’t risk losing your license, your car and your freedom. If you drive impaired, law enforcement will arrest you.
This project is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
