The Illinois State Police is urging safety in driving over the holidays. ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly is reminding motorists that ISP will be out in full force for the holiday season looking for the fatal four: Driving under the influence, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, and distracted driving.
ISP will also be on the lookout for the Move Over (Scott’s Law). The ISP will be conducting extra patrols and roadside safety checks. The ISP is encouraging you to be the sober driver, designate a sober driver, or use a ride-share service.
“Holidays should be a time for celebration with family and friends. Our troopers will be strictly enforcing all laws, with the goal of keeping our roadways safe and preventing unnecessary tragedies. We also ask motorists to assist us in keeping our first responders safe while they work to keep US safe. We are confident that with your help everyone can have an enjoyable holiday season.”
ISP also wants to warn against texting and driving and to keep your eyes on the road. For more information on road conditions and other issues visit gettingaroundillinois.com.
