Press Release Date: December 4, 2002    || Archived December 31, 2002
SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced today participation in National Drunk and Drugged Driver (3D) Prevention Month during December. Troopers will increase education and enforcement efforts to reduce driving under the influence and other alcohol and drug related offenses.
 

“Last December, 30 people died in alcohol related crashes in Illinois,” said ISP Director Sam W. Nolen. “The message is clear that driving under the influence is a deadly act that ends thousands of lives each year.”
 

Impaired drivers are a threat to everyone’s safety. Protect your community. If you observe any of the following impaired driving behaviors call the police:
 

  • Weaving down the roadway.
  • Operating at unusually low or very high speeds.
  • Excessive reaction time or long delays in responding to traffic signals.
  • Stopping at inappropriate locations, e.g., 10 feet past a stop sign.
  • Driving without headlights or with bright lights on in town.

 
Be prepared. If you drink, don’t drive. Call a taxi, designate a sober driver, or plan on spending the night wherever you choose to celebrate.
 
Remember . . . You Drink & Drive, You Lose.
