PEORIA, Ill. -- Over last weekend, Illinois State Police troopers conducted two roadside safety checks in Peoria County.
The checks, which are used to cut down on alcohol-related driving offenses, showed there were more drivers that received citations for registration and license offenses than alcohol.
Police said the first detail, conducted on June 8 near Springfield Road in Tremont, did not include any DUI arrests or other alcohol or drug arrests. However, 5 were cited for registration offenses and 11 were cited for driver's license offenses.
In the late evening hours of June 9, police arrested 9 for alcohol-related offenses in the second detail. That detail was conducted near Kickapoo Creek Road in West Peoria.
Ten drivers were cited for registration and another 10 were cited for driver's license offenses.
The Roadside Safety Check project was funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
