Illinois State Police On The Lookout For Holiday Drunk Drivers
Labor day weekend is full of fun, including having a few drinks with family and friends. The Illinois State Police want to make sure you arrive home safely.
According to WTVO, District 16 officers are on the lookout this Labor Day weekend for people drinking and driving.
""Labor Day weekend historically has high amount of traffic crashes and late at night with an unacceptable amount of them involving drinking," said Public Information Officer of the Illinois Department of Transportation Gianna Urgo. "Last year, 13 people lost their lives this holiday weekend with 3 of them being drivers who have tested positive for alcohol in their system."
They will also be on the lookout for people not wearing seat belts. Just make sure that you are not on the phone, drinking and driving and being safe by buckling up this weekend.
