ILLINOIS STATE POLICE USING ROADSIDE SAFETY CHECKS

 

Illinois State Police District 11 Commander, Captain Jerry Culp said the use of Roadside Safety Checks this summer.  Culp said, "The Roadside Safety Check is an effective tool to generate voluntary compliance by the motoring public."  Summer activities frequently involve alcohol.  The potential to come across these checks encourages motorists to arrange for designated drivers and keep their consumption of alcohol with allowable limits.

 

Roadside safety checks will be held in St. Clair, Madison, Monroe, Bond, and Clinton Counties during the month of July.

EXPANDED WAL-MART HIP-CHARM RECALL DUE TO HIGH LEAD LEVELS, MADIGAN URGES SENATE TO PASS "GET THE LEAD OUT" BILL

 

Attorney General Lisa Madigan alerted consumers recently to high levels of lead, found in hip-charms, manufactured for Wal-Mart.  New test results, showing lead levels as high at 990,000 parts per million, triggered the expanded recall of the "No Boundaries Hip Charm."  Madigan is urging the State Senate to pass an amendment to the Lead Poisoning Prevention Act, Senate Bill 2860, requiring that lead warning statements be printed on children's products that exceed the 40 parts per million limit recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.  You can get more information on recalled items at 1-888-414-7678.
