ROADSIDE SAFETY CHECKS IN SEPTEMBER
According to Captain Jerry Culp, Illinois State Police from District 11 will be conducting roadside safety checks in St. Clair, Madison, Monroe, Bond and Clinton Counties during September and specifically over the Labor Day weekend. Penalties for drinking and driving include the potential for Breathalyzer ignition interlock devices, heavy fines, driver's license suspensions, and even sentencing to county jail time. The potential to encounter roadside safety checks encourages motorists to arrange for designated drivers, keep consumption of alcohol within allowable limits or not travel in a motor vehicle at all after drinking.
