State, County and Local Law Enforcement to Step-Up Efforts to Drive Down Vehicle Injuries and Deaths Over the Holiday Weekend

EAST MOLINE – In an effort to reach out to Illinois motorists over the Labor Day holiday weekend, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) joins Illinois State Police (ISP) and the East Moline Police Department to strongly remind motorists to “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” IDOT will also discuss a fresh and innovative advertising campaign which has been created utilizing digital and social media to reach those drivers who are most-often involved in drunk driving crashes, most likely to drink and drive and most likely to not buckle up. A press conference will be held on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 10 a.m. at the Illinois State Police Headquarters-District 7, 800 Hillcrest Road, East Moline, IL 61244.

WHAT: The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign reminds Illinois motorists of the importance of driving sober and buckling up to minimize the risk of serious injury or fatal crashes. This final summer push, which runs August 15 through September 1, seeks
to keep motor vehicle fatalities as low as possible through what can be a very dangerous holiday on Illinois roads.
