Road side safety checks slated for Friday night
The Spring Grove Police Department will be conducting a Road Side Safety Check Point during the evening hours of Friday, July 19. Officers will be watching for drivers who are driving under the influence, transporting alcoholic beverages, driving with a suspended or revoked license, use of safety belts, and checking for valid insurance. Alcohol and drug impairment remains a significant factor in over 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. Safety checks are designed to keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road. Remember to use a designated driver and buckle up for safety.
