CARMI, Ill. - Illinois State Police District 19 Commander, Captain Cory Ristvedt, announces the results of a Nighttime Enforcement (NITE) patrol in Wayne County during March.
This NITE patrol allowed the ISP to focus on preventing, detecting, and taking enforcement action in response to impaired driving and occupant restraint violations, especially between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Below are the stats:
Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Over half of all fatal crashes in Illinois occur at night. The NITE program allows officers to work even harder at removing dangerous impaired drivers from the road and making sure everyone is buckled up. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of transportation.
