Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois, and
throughout the U.S., nearly 10,000 people die each year due to alcohol-impaired driving. RSCs are designed to
keep our roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road. This project was funded through the Illinois
Department of Transportation.

Illinois State Police (ISP) District 19 Commander, Captain Cory Ristvedt, announces the results of an
Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrol (OREP) held in Saline and Gallatin Counties during April. This OREP
provided extra patrol coverage for the ISP so officers could focus on saving lives by making sure all vehicle
occupants were buckled up.

Violations Enforcement Activity:
Safety Belt Citations 31
Child Restraint Citations 0
Total Citations 42
Total Written Warnings 15

Most motorists know safety belts save lives, but some ignore their safety and that of their families by neglecting
to use safety belts and child restraint devices. These patrols reinforce the occupant protection message by focusing
on those who ignore the law. Lives can be saved if people simply “buckle up!” This project is funded through
the Illinois Department of Transportation.
