Hamilton, Gallatin, Saline patrol results issued by ISP

Posted by on Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 @ 8:18 pm.

HAMILTON, GALLATIN, SALINE COs., Ill. - A couple of special patrols were held this past weekend - and in the case of Saline, the month of April (so far) in three of our coverage counties - Hamilton, Gallatin and Saline - by Illinois State Police, and ISP has released the results of these.

Here are the results from the Roadside Safety Check (RSC) held in Hamilton County from late night Friday, April 6, to early morning Saturday, April 7, 2014, at Illinois Route 14 and Illinois Route 142 in McLeansboro, by District 19 officers.

ISP says alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois, and throughout the U.S., nearly 10,000 people die each year due to alcohol-impaired driving. RSCs are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.

An Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrol (OREP) was held in Saline and Gallatin counties in April. No dates, times or locations were issued.

Most motorists know safety belts save lives, but some ignore their safety and that of their families by neglecting
to use safety belts and child restraint devices. These patrols reinforce the occupant protection message by focusing on those who ignore the law. Lives can be saved if people simply “buckle up!”

These projects are funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation and use your tax dollars in order to do so.
