SPRINGFIELD – State and local police are boosting patrols for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers, speeders, those not wearing a seatbelt, distracted drivers and more says Illinois Department of Transportation spokesperson Paul Wappel.
“There will be more patrols out including state troopers and local law enforcement patrolling the highways and roads making sure everyone gets from point A to point B safely,” said Wappel.
As of Nov. 12, 1,090 people have died on Illinois roads this year. That’s an increase compared to this time last year.
