Alcohol is involved in nearly 40 percent of fatal crashes in Illinois.  RSCs are designed to remove alcohol-impaired drivers. However, when other violations are observed such as driving with a suspended or revoked license, operating a vehicle without a valid registration or insurance, or safety belt violations, enforcement action may be taken.                                                                                                                                  

This project was funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
