Speeders among Ogle traffic patrols' targets
Posted Apr 11, 2008 @ 07:52 AM

State troopers will conduct traffic patrols this month to target speeding drivers on Ogle County highways, officials announced today.

Roads tapped for extra surveillance include Illinois 2, Illinois 251, Illinois 64, Illinois 72, Illinois 26, U.S. Route 52 and Interstate 39.

During the patrols, troopers will look for speeding drivers, drivers who fail to buckle up, and other traffic violations such as following too closely, improper lane use and aggressive driving. Officials say those violations contribute to most major traffic accidents.

The extra patrols are paid for by the federal government and will take place in tandem with other patrols and details state troopers would normally conduct in Ogle County.
