Illinois State Police to Conduct Roadside Safety Check
The check will take place overnight from Feb. 22 into Feb. 23 on the I-88 ramp to Route 31 near Batavia.
The following is from a press release issued by the Illinois State Police:
The Illinois State Police (ISP), District 15, will conduct a Roadside Safety Check in Kane County during the hours of 11 p.m. February 22 until 4 a.m. February 23, according to Captain Joe Perez. The roadside check will be held on the ramp from the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) to Illinois Route 31 (IL-31).
The State Police have zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois. Officers working this detail will be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages or Driving Under the Influence (DUI).
Alcohol and drug impairment is a significant factor in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Roadside checks 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, Division of Traffic Safety.
