The Illinois State Police will join 15 states along the I-90 and I-94 corridor in a massive public safety initiative called the I-90/94 Challenge aimed to reduce traffic fatalities and prevent criminal activity, according to a news release issued Tuesday. Illinois State Police will focus on commercial vehicle enforcement and commercial vehicle driver safety. Beginning at midnight Aug. 1, state police will saturate areas of I-90/94 with dedicated police resources specifically targeting speeding, DUI, seat belts and distracted driving violations, commercial motor vehicle compliance inspections, and illegal criminal and drug activity. The crackdown follows a couple of recent fatal truck accidents in which the drivers were later charged with altering logs to drive more hours than legally allowed.
