Police Plan July 4th Roadside Safety Checks

The Algonquin Police Department will partner with Illinois State Police to conduct a roadside safety check June 29.

Area police will be conducting road safety checks in coming days with the hopes of keeping drunken drivers off the road over the holiday weekend.

The Illinois State Police along with the Algonquin Police Department will conduct a joint roadside safety check in Algonquin the evening of June 29.

Officers will be watching for drivers who are driving under the influence, transporting open alcoholic beverages, operating unsafe vehicles and driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license, according to an Algonquin Police Department press release.

In addition, the Illinois State Police District 15 will conduct a roadside safety check on Interstate 90 and Route 31 over the Fourth of July.

State police Capt. Joe Perez said officers will conduct the safety check from 11 p.m. Tuesday, July 3, to 4 a.m., Wednesday, July 4.

Officers are looking for drivers operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages or driving under the influence, Perez said.

Alcohol and drug impairment are significant factors in more than 40 percent of all fatal vehicle crashes in Illinois. Roadside safety checks are designed to keep roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road.

The assertion that the first pathways were the trails made by animals has not been universally accepted, since in many cases animals do not follow constant paths. Others believe that some roads originated from following animal trails. Thanks. Regards, http://www.writingaessay.net/writing-a-research-essay/ |writing a research essay

Using this definition, protection from a home’s external threats and protection from its internal structural and equipment failures are not two types of safety but rather two aspects of a home’s steady state. Thanks. Regards, http://nslegal.com/ | nslegal.com

Open your bonnet to indicate different drivers that you just square measure dampened and not just stopped next to the road, this manner road safety officers also will be ready to establish you and are available to your rescue. http://www.statisticalanalysis.biz/ | help with statistical analysis

Readers unfortunately are left to conclude whether they comprise a redundancy. This confuses the uniqueness that should be reserved for each by itself. Thanks. Regards, http://youtu.be/7m7QEilKvRk | green coffee bean extract
