ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Illinois State Police plan a statewide safety crackdown on Friday. It’s in memory of State Trooper James Sauter from southern Illinois. He was killed one year ago today in a fiery accident near Chicago. He was in his squad car, when a tractor-trailer rear-ended his car.

“Operation Sauter” will target commercial vehicles cracking down on speeding, drunk or distracted drivers, and seatbelt violations.

    Hmmmm – I wonder why they don’t have a safety crackdown on arrogant, pig-headed cops driving distracted by texting while they drive 120MPH to a fender-bender, on the anniversary of the two girls being KILLED by that disgusting ISP pig a few years ago, in THEIR memory?

    Yeah, everything is always about them – as they never do no wrong, yeah, right.

    Oh, well – at least they’re focusing on commercial vehicles, which is at least something more helpful than the usual DWI roadblocks.
