Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois.
Over half of all fatal crashes in Illinois occur at night. The NITE program allows officers to work even harder at
removing dangerous impaired drivers from the road and making sure everyone is buckled up. This project is
funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
