The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced the results of a Roadside Safety Check (RSC) held during the late evening hours of March 17 and early morning hours of March 18. The detail was conducted on Annie Glidden Road north of Illinois Route 38, DeKalb, by ISP District 2 officers along with officers from DeKalb Police Department and Northern Illinois University Police Department.
Alcohol is involved in nearly 40 percent of fatal crashes in Illinois. RSCs are designed to remove alcohol-impaired drivers, however, when other violations are observed such as driving with a suspended or revoked license, operating a vehicle without a valid registration or insurance, or safety belt violations, enforcement action may be taken. The following citations were issued at the safety check:
|Driver’s license offenses||6|
|Occupant restraint offenses||1|
|Driving under the influence arrests||0|
|Other alcohol/drug arrests||6|
|Total written warnings||12|
This project was funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
