Police in Full Force on I-80 Tonight
If you drive I-80, consider this your heads up.
If you've ever seen a lot of police out on the interstate, what's the first thing someone always says?
'They must need to make their quota!'
I can't tell you how many times I have heard people say that. Despite that thought, there is a nationwide reason they will be out tonight.
According to WQAD.com,
"It’s part of a 20-state initiative called “Click It or Ticket, Border to Border Operation,” designed to reduce traffic fatalities by focusing on the four violations that are most likely to lead to a fatal crash. They are speeding, DUI, distracted driving, and seat belt usage.
“Seat belts save lives. The simple act of wearing a seat belt can reduce your chances of being injured or killed in a serious traffic crash. Seat belt usage applies to every passenger in a vehicle, not just the driver,” said a statement from Illinois State Police.
Illinois Police will be looking for the Top 4 traffic violations tonight that lead to accidents and fatalities: speeding, DUI, distracted driving and no seat belt.
