This Month police in Illinois are trying to make highways safer for drivers. In Johnson County the Illinois State Police will conduct Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrols (OREP). The police are doing this to focus more on child safety laws, as well as regular seat belt laws. It is a federal law in the state for all drivers and passengers to buckle up. Police officers will be conducting nighttime patrols in Union County. They will be on the lookout for drunk driving, and child restraint law violations.
