(KTVI) – State Troopers will be out in full force this holiday weekend.  Authorities will target drunk drivers and those who are not buckled up.  Federal officials are joining Illinois Law Enforcement for the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.  The effort is aimed at reducing crashes on Illinois roads during busy summer travels.

Data shows that there have been 85 fewer deadly crashes in Illinois in the first half of this year compared to the same time last year.

      Sounds like you are OK with drunks all over the roads killing people or maybe you a have a few DUIs under your belt (not your fault I am sure you will say). I have no problem with check points if it removes and locks up jerks like you.

    Why don’t the Police do this on our North side and in ESTL? I bet it would knock out 75% of the crime by prevention.

    Funny how you think all the drunks are on the north side, driving around. In the course of driving around running errands today, my police scanner had calls for possible DUI “all over the road” five times. Guess where they were. Kirkwood, Manchester Road, Dorsett, I-55 and Dougherty Ferry. Hardly sounds like NORTH to me. 5 calls in 45 mins. That sounds pretty bad to me.
