SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois State Police (ISP) will join law enforcement agencies and organizations throughout the nation observe "National Drunk and Drugged Driver (3D) Prevention Month" during December.
 

Troopers will increase education and enforcement efforts during 3D Month to reduce Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and other alcohol- and drug-related offenses which contribute to impaired driving," said ISP Director Sam W. Nolen. "The campaign highlights the crime of DUI and the deadly toll impaired drivers pose to the families and communities of our state.
 

Statistics reveal the threat to highway safety. Last year in Illinois, 36 percent of fatally injured drivers, those whose blood level was tested, had alcohol concentration levels above the legal limit of .08.
 

Troopers will continue the fight against DUI by "Tying One on For Safety" by placing red ribbons on their squad cars. Motorists are also encouraged to show their support by affixing red ribbons to their vehicles as well.
 

Director Nolen reminded motorists to always wear a seat belt – the best defense against a drunk driver.
