SOUTHERN ILLINOIS (KFVS) -

Illinois State Police are cracking down on unsafe and impaired drivers during the month of December with Nighttime Enforcement Patrols and a roadside safety check. 

Interim Commander Lt. William Sons says the Nighttime Enforcement, or NITE Patrols, will take place in Union County, Ill. with the purpose of watching out for felonies committed on the road. 

These felonies include driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, operating motor vehicles with suspended or revoked driver's licenses, or driving while not being properly buckled up. 

Sons also announced that during the month of December, ISP officers conduct a roadside safety check in order to combat similar offenses in Alexander County.

The patrols and roadside safety check will be funded by the Division of Traffic Safety of IDOT.
