WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick says his department will be performing upcoming roadside safety checks in the county checking for impaired drivers and seat belt use.

Over next three weeks, several checks will be scheduled during both day and nighttime hours encouraging safe driving through the Memorial Day holiday weekend. 

The purpose is to detect and remove impaired drivers from the road.

Vicks says drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or other drugs will be arrested.  Deputies will also check seat belt use and for uninsured motorists. 

Several DUI saturation patrols will also be scheduled through the next few weeks.

These enforcement activities are part of the statewide "Click It or Ticket" campaign, organized by the Illinois Department of Transportation encouraging seat-belt usage and sober driving. 

Funding from the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety make these Roadside Safety Checks and Saturation Patrols possible.
