Special Traffic Enforcement Patrols

Illinois State Police District One Commander, Captain Matthew Hodgdon, announces the results of Special Traffic Enforcement Patrols (sTEP) in Lee, Ogle and Whiteside Counties during May. These sTEPs allowed the ISP to provide increased enforcement for impaired driving, occupant restraint, speeding, and distracted driving violations during the National “Click It or Ticket” Campaign.

Occupant Restraint Violations 7, Driving Under the Influence & Drug/Alcohol Citations 0, Speeding Citations and Warnings 67, Distracted Driving Citations and Warnings 3. Total Citations 74.
Total Written Warnings 35.

Driving the posted speed limit, sober, not distracted, and buckled up will save your life and the lives of many others. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
