State Police to Conduct Roadside Safety Checks in Ogle County

Illinois State Police (ISP) District 1 Commander, Captain Matthew Hodgdon, announces the ISP will conduct Roadside Safety Checks (RSCs) in Ogle County during the last two weeks of August.

The use of RSCs, according to Hodgdon, combines a strong sense of public awareness and enforcement in order to save lives of the motoring public.

The ISP has zero tolerance for impaired driving in Illinois. Officers working the detail will be watchful for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, transporting open alcoholic beverages.
