Winnebago County Police recently ran a DUI crackdown in August.

The Illinois State Police announces the results of their Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement (ACE) patrols in Winnebago County during August. These ACE patrols allowed the police to focus on preventing, detecting, and taking enforcement action in response to violations associated with impaired driving and illegal transportation or consumption of alcohol or drugs.

Here are the results:

The Illinois State Police would like to remind you that alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Illinois. There is one alcohol-related traffic fatality every 53 minutes in the United States. The ACE program allows officers to work even harder at removing dangerous DUI offenders from the road. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
