Over 90 Citations Issued During Roadside Safety Checks in Marion CountyOver 90 citations were issued by the Illinois State Police during roadside safety checks in Marion County on Saturday, November 24th. There were five driver's licenses offenses, eleven occupant restraint offenses, three DUI arrests, three other alcohol and drug arrests, thirty-three total citations and arrests, and 36-total written warnings during the safety check.
Alcohol is involved in over 40-percent of fatal crashes in Illinois. Roadside safety checks are designed to remove alcohol-impaired drivers. However when other violations are observed, such as driving with a suspended or revoked license, operating a vehicle without a valid registration or insurance, or safety belt violations, enforcement action may be taken. This project was funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
