From the Illinois State Police:
Pesotum, IL – (8/30/16) – Illinois State Police District 10 Commander, Captain Louis Kink, announced today that District 10 Troopers will conduct multiple enforcement patrols between August 30, 2016 and September 6, 2016 in Vermilion, Macon, and Champaign Counties. These extra patrols will include specific alcohol concentrated details and occupant restraint details.
District 10 Troopers will concentrate on speeding, failure to use occupant restraints, and other driving offenses as part of their enforcement efforts. Speeding is a contributing factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes nationwide. In Illinois, speed-related crashes account for 37 percent of all traffic fatalities. Troopers will enforce the primary safety belt law to ensure drivers and all of their passengers are buckled up. Every hour someone dies in America simply because they are not wearing their safety belt. Statistics show that half of all people killed in traffic crashes are not properly buckled up. You can save your life by driving safely and simply buckling up.
