Labor Day Police Patrols Increased In Illinois

Posted: Updated:

 

Illinois State Police are reminding those getting ready to celebrate this Labor Day weekend to "Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over."

"Driver sober or get pulled over is about deterrence, it's about prevention, it's about saving lives," said Shannon Alderman, Alcohol Program Coordinator of the Department of Transportation.

The campaign is an effort to increase safety belt use and discourage driving under the influence.
     
Police say the campaign is having a positive affect and statistics show there is a reduction in the number of late night crashes over the past five years.
