State Police to conduct roadside safety check April 25-27
Online Staff Report
PECATONICA, Ill. — The Illinois State Police (ISP), District 16, will conduct a roadside safety check (RSC) in Winnebago County during the weekend of April 25-27, according to Captain Todd Rohlwing.
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 are significant factors in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. RSCs 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.
