The Illinois State Police will be having two roadside checkpoints in order to crackdown on unsafe driving such as driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license and transporting alcoholic beverages.

The police are taking a zero tolerance approach on drunk driving. Safety check points were designed to prevent people from driving drunk. Forty percent of all motor vehicle accidents in Illinois have alcohol as a significant factor. A grant from the US Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Administration has funded the roadside check points.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI, contact the Champaign DUI lawyers of Bruno Law Offices by calling (217) 328-6000.
