Illinois State Police may conduct Roadside Safety Checks in St. Clair and Madison counties during November, announced Captain Brad Parsons.
Safety checks are designed to keep roads safe by taking dangerous DUI offenders off the road, according to police.
Officers working the checks also will watch for drivers who are operating vehicles in an unsafe manner, driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license and transporting open alcoholic beverages.
The safety check is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The grant is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation Division of Traffic Safety.
