Illinois State Police officials are warning drivers cops will be out in full force this holiday weekend. About 100 roadside safety checks are scheduled across the state in an effort to crack down on drunk driving.
Illinois state police are defending their record on searching minority drivers during traffic stops. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed an official complaint because state police consistently ask minority drivers to allow a search of their cars more often than they ask white drivers.
Searching and circling for a parking spot this holiday season? If you're among the legions of drivers and shoppers desparate to find a place to park, beware: Illinois is cracking down on people who illegally park in accessible parking spaces.
