Cops To Target DUI... And Cell Phones... In Holiday Week Blitz

New Year… same story.  State and local police will be out in large numbers over the next few days looking out for drunk drivers and other traffic offenders. 


Shannon Alderman with the Illinois Department of Transportation notes that seven people lost their lives on Illinois roadways over the New Year holiday last year… with nearly half of those fatalities linked to alcohol. 


Expanded patrols are expected all the way through the first weekend of January… and once the New Year arrives, police will also be looking for drivers talking on a hand-held cell phone behind the wheel.  That becomes illegal in Illinois, effective January 1st.
