More Patrols Planned During Holiday Travel Period

State and local police have already been busy this week looking out for drunk drivers and people not wearing seat belts… and they’re just getting started.


Expect more intensive patrols between now and Sunday, the end of the busy Thanksgiving travel period.


An IDOT official says the frequent complaint that such patrols are simply an attempt to collect lots of fines from drivers is a myth.


She says the patrols usually cost more to put on than they collect in fines… but she says they are effective in getting people to slow down and buckle up, which reduces accidents and fatalities.
