The primary goal of this initiative is to preserve lives within the motoring public.

Demonstrating zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois, ISP officers deployed for this detail will be vigilant in identifying and addressing various infractions, including operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages, and, most notably:

  1. Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  2. Safety Belt and Child Restraint use
  3. Speeding
  4. Distracted Driving
  5. All Illinois Vehicle Code and Criminal Violations

Statistics reveal that alcohol and drug impairment contribute to over 30 percent of fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Nationwide, alcohol-impaired driving results in nearly 10,000 fatalities annually. The RSCs are strategically designed to enhance road safety by apprehending DUI offenders and removing them from the road. This initiative is generously funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The overarching message of the campaign is encapsulated in the slogan, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” The ISP encourages all motorists to prioritize safety, obey traffic regulations, and make responsible choices while operating a vehicle.
