ISP urges the public to drive responsibly during the holidays

SPRINGFIELD —  Illinois State Police (ISP) Director Brendan F. Kelly is reminding motorists to enjoy the holidays responsibly and take the necessary safety precautions to prevent unnecessary tragedies..

The ISP will be doing their part to keep Illinois roadways safe by strictly enforcing all laws, with an emphasis on the four most common causes of fatal traffic crashes.   “The Fatal Four” includes: Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Speeding, not wearing a Seat Belt, and Distracted Driving. Additionally, the ISP will also focus on the Move Over (Scott’s) Law. Throughout the holidays, the ISP will conduct extra patrols and roadside safety checks with an emphasis on removing impaired drivers from the roadways with the goal of reducing traffic crashes. ISP encourages the public to do their part to make travel safe this holiday season.  If you will be attending an event where alcohol is being served, please do your part by making the roadways safer; be the sober driver, designate a sober driver, or use a taxi or ride-share service.

"Holidays should be a time for celebration with family and friends. Our troopers will be strictly enforcing all laws, with the goal of keeping our roadways safe and preventing unnecessary tragedies,” stated Illinois State Police Director Brendan F. Kelly.  “We also ask motorists to assist us in keeping our first responders safe while they work to keep US safe. We are confident that with your help, everyone can have an enjoyable holiday season,” he concluded.

ISP also reminds motorists to drive sober, slow down, keep your eyes on the road and away from cell phones, buckle up, and “Give Them Distance” when approaching flashing lights on the shoulder.
