We're right in the middle of the Labor Day weekend, and police continue to keep an eye out for drunk drivers.  Motorists should expect to see plenty of cops on Illinois highways and local roads through the weekend.  The emphasis will be on arresting drunk drivers.

Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Michael Vorreyer says he can’t stress enough the importance of having a designated driver.

Vorreyer comments

Last year, nine people were killed and 709 were injured over the Labor Day weekend on Illinois roads.
