Roadside Safety Checks in Marion County Throughout DecemberThe Illinois State Police announced Wednesday they will be conducting Roadside Safety Checks (RSC) in Marion County during December.
RSCs are designed to keep roads safe by taking DUI offenders off the road, and ensure all drivers and their passengers are buckled up. Officers will be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license, driving under the influence, or transporting open alcoholic beverages. The ISP has zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois.
This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
