ISP announces results of special traffic patrols

LASALLE — Lt. Jason LoCoco, District 17 interim commander, announces the results of Special Traffic Enforcement Patrols (STEP) in LaSalle County during November.

There were three citations and one warning issued for occupant restraint violations, two citations for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, 88 citations and 38 warnings for speeding, four warnings for distracted driving, plus 112 total citations and 100 written warnings issued.

These STEPs allowed the Illinois State Police to provide increased enforcement for impaired driving, occupant restraint, speeding, and distracted driving violations during the National “Click It or Ticket” Campaign.

Driving the posted speed limit, sober, not distracted, and buckled up will save drivers’ lives and the lives of many others.
