SPRINGFIELD, IL –The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced today participation in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) during the Labor Day holiday, August 30 - September 2.

"Operation C.A.R.E. was formed in 1977 by state police departments across the nation as a national program to deter the three key causes of highway fatalities: speeding, impaired driving, and failure to use occupant restraints," said ISP Director Sam W. Nolen. "Troopers assigned to various enforcement details throughout the weekend will place a special emphasis not only on these three factors, but all Illinois laws to ensure the final holiday of the summer is safe and enjoyable for everyone."

Last year during the four-day holiday period, 15 people died on Illinois roadways as a result of 15 crashes.
