McHenry police to conduct roadside check

McHENRY – McHenry police will set up a roadside checkpoint Saturday night as part of their Labor Day campaign against driving under the influence.

The stepped up enforcement is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation and includes most area municipalities.

The campaign will focus on late-night impaired drivers and seat belt law violators, according to a news release from the McHenry Police Department.

The department recommends designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk.

During this event, McHenry police will show zero tolerance for drunken drivers and seat belt violations, the release said. Since 2012, all passengers in a vehicle have been required to wear seat belts.
