Police Boosting Patrols For Holiday Weekend

(Springfield, IL) — Police are boosting patrols and holding roadside safety checks this holiday weekend. It’s an all-out effort to make sure no one is killed in a car crash as the year comes to a close. Last year, seven people were killed during the New Year’s holiday and another 263 were injured in crashes. If all goes as planned, 2014 will be the sixth year in a row that the state has seen fewer than one-thousand road deaths.
