Traffic safety campaign in Williamson County

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -  Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick has announced a Traffic Safety Campaign.

Through the next several weeks, roadside safety checks will be held during the day and nighttime hours in order to encourage safe driving.

Safety checks will be held at several locations for the purpose of detecting and removing impaired drivers from the road. Deputies will also focus on seat belt usage and uninsured motorists.

Several DUI Saturation Patrols may also be scheduled through the next few weeks.

Funding from the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety makes these Roadside Safety Checks and Saturation Patrols possible.
