Are You Drinking or Driving?
Chief Jeffrey VenHuizen announced today they will conduct special patrols this Super Bowl weekend to keep impaired drivers off the roads and encourage more people to wear their seat belts. The messages are familiar and simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.
"We need your help to keep alcohol - and drug-impaired drivers off our roads," said Chief VenHuizen. "All it takes is a game plan. Before you to the party, decide if you're drinking or driving - never do both."
"We will also be checking for compliance with seat belt laws," Chief VenHuizen said, "so remember to buckle up."
The Rock Island Police Departments Super Bowl enforcement effort is made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
