ROADSIDE SAFETY CHECKS IN MADISON AND ST. CLAIR COUNTIES
According to District 11 Commander Captain Brad Parsons, Illinois State Police Officers may conduct roadside safety checks in Madison and St. Clair Counties during January. Roadside safety checks are effective tools for generating voluntary compliance with traffic laws by the motoring public. They help keep our roads safer by removing dangerous DUI offenders. Officers will also be watchful for drivers operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, and transporting open alcoholic beverages.
