Labor Day Enforcement

Press Release Date: September 1, 2004    || Archived September 30, 2004
SPRINGFIELD, IL - The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced participation in two traffic safety initiatives designed to reduce traffic crashes and remove impaired drivers from Illinois roadways during the Labor Day holiday. The “You Drink & Drive. You Lose” campaign (August 26 to September 12) and Combined Accident Reduction Effort (C.A.R.E.)(September 3 through September 6), emphasize the importance of obeying all traffic laws in an effort to save lives.

The ISP will join more than 350 local law enforcement agencies statewide to conduct roadside safety checks and saturation patrols.

“Troopers working these roadside safety checks and saturation patrols will aggressively enforce seat belt use, child passenger safety, speeding, DUI, and other offenses to ensure highway safety. Additional enforcement activities are designed to promote highway safety and reduce the number of unnecessary deaths on our roadways.” said ISP Director Larry G. Trent.

Last year during the Labor Day holiday weekend (August 29 - September 1), 22 people died on Illinois roadways as a result of 19 crashes.
