EFFINGHAM,IL-(Effingham Radio)-Illinois State Police (ISP) District 12 Commander, Captain Cory Ristvedt, announces the ISP will conduct Roadside Safety Checks (RSCs) in Fayette County during May.
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI);
- Safety Belt and child restraint use;
- Distracted Driving; and,
- All Illinois Vehicle Code and Criminal Violations.
Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois, and throughout the U.S., nearly 10,000 people die each year due to alcohol-impaired driving.
RSCs are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.
This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
