Roadside Safety Checks in DuPage Co. Begin Friday

The Illinois State Police will conduct Roadside Safety Checks in DuPage County on Friday and Saturday.

The Illinois State Police (ISP), District 15, will conduct a Roadside Safety Check (RSC) in DuPage County during the hours of 11 p.m. on Friday, February 21, until 4 a.m. on Saturday, February 22.

According to Captain Patrick Kimes, the RSC will be held on the entrance ramp from Spring Road to the westbound Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88).       

The ISP has 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. RSCs 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.
