ISP warn about ending your summer with a DUI: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

SPRINGFIELD – Heading into the final big weekend of summer, the Illinois Department of Transportation and Illinois State Police remind everyone that alcohol and drug-impaired driving is not a game. More than 200 law enforcement agencies across the state are stepping up to arrest impaired drivers as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” national Labor Day campaign. During the campaign that runs through Labor Day, ISP is joining local police and sheriff departments to conduct enforcement during peak periods for impaired driving, while reminding motorists that Driving Under the Influence is a serious crime with real-life, sobering consequences. The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” programs in Illinois are funded with federal highway safety dollars administered by IDOT.
“Driving while impaired due to alcohol or drugs is illegal and the Illinois State Police will be out in full force this holiday weekend enforcing the law,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly.
