ISP announces October patrol enforcement

CARMI, IL (KFVS) -

Illinois State Police District 19 in Carmi has announced several upcoming patrols to stop impaired driving and to enforce seat belt usage in southern Illinois.

Captain Kelly Hodge says that that ISP will conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement (ACE) patrols in Wayne, White, and Gallatin Counties during the month of October.

These ACE patrols allow the ISP to target an area with a saturation patrol to stop impaired

driving and illegal transportation or consumption of alcohol and other drugs.

If you drive impaired, law enforcement says they will arrest you.

Troopers will also conduct Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols (OREP) in Wabash and Gallatin Counties during the month of October.

Troopers will check for seat belt usage, and do child seat inspections.

These projects are funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Transportation Safety.
