It’s safety first when you’re behind the wheel, but if you are not on board with that this Halloween weekend, the Illinois Department of Transportation and Illinois State Police will be more than happy to arrest you. IDOT spokeswoman Paris Ervin says extra enforcement will be out to make sure everybody knows to Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Ervin says the state’s annual goal of Zero Fatalities is not going to happen in 2014: “Illinois motor vehicle fatalities are at 763,” she says. “We want that each year to be at zero! It’s lower by 86 compared to last year, and we just want to keep those numbers on the decline.” Ervin is also promoting an online video campaign called “The Driving Dead.” It’s aimed at people who like zombies.
