Illinois State Police to Conduct Roadside Safety Check

The check will take place overnight from Feb. 22 into Feb. 23 on the I-88 ramp to Route 31 near Batavia.

The following is from a press release issued by the Illinois State Police:

The Illinois State Police (ISP), District 15, will conduct a Roadside Safety Check in Kane County during the hours of 11 p.m. February 22 until 4 a.m. February 23, according to Captain Joe Perez. The roadside check will be held on the ramp from the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) to Illinois Route 31 (IL-31). 

The State Police have zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois. Officers working this detail will be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages or Driving Under the Influence (DUI). 

Alcohol and drug impairment is a significant factor in nearly 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Roadside checks are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.

These comments are hilarious. Here is the bottom line solution: don't drink and drive. Unreal. Scared about your rights being violated? Take a class or two and learn when you can be confident telling a cop, "No".

Those that are ignorant of history are bound to repeat it. Suggest you read the histories of Russia, China, Germany, Cuba and a dozen other past and present civilizations and countries. It is always the same the countries prosper and the people who created it pass it on to the next generations who have had everything handed to them and become too lazy to even vote. They blindly follow the piper who gives them everything in return for their freedoms. Good luck suckers!
