Roadside Safety Checks in DuPage Co. Begin Friday

The Illinois State Police will conduct Roadside Safety Checks in DuPage County on Friday and Saturday.

The Illinois State Police (ISP), District 15, will conduct a Roadside Safety Check (RSC) in DuPage County during the hours of 11 p.m. on Friday, February 21, until 4 a.m. on Saturday, February 22.

According to Captain Patrick Kimes, the RSC will be held on the entrance ramp from Spring Road to the westbound Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88).       

The ISP has 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. 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, Division of Traffic Safety.

"I solemnly vow upon my honor as a cadet and citizen, to adhere to the rules and regulations of the Illinois State Police and to adopt the agency's mission and goals into my every day life. I pledge to be honest in thought, word, and deed; to strive toward my highest learning effort and avail myself of every opportunity to learn to my highest capacity. I will do this by maintaining unimpeachable integrity of behavior to bring honor upon the Illinois State Police. I shall endeavor to give thoughtful, intelligent obedience to the commands of my superiors, to obey the Constitution and laws of my country and the State of Illinois in a way that will set my behavior for the remainder of my career with the Illinois State Police." "To obey the Constitution" ha ha,except the Fourth Amendment they piss all over that.

I wonder what the punishment is for actually pissing on the constitution?

You get to play a lot of golf and become The President of the United States.

If the bars in Oakbrook were loyal to their fans, they would inform their patrons on this, seems like they are targeting the the deep pockets drivers who will be leaving Mortons or Clubhouse, this is grant money that could be used to fix potholes or other much needed repairs. They should have a food truck selling donuts on the side.
