WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WREX) -

Troopers with Illinois State Police District 16 will be out in larger numbers within Winnebago County this weekend.

With alcohol or drug impairment acting as a large factor in almost 40 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in the state, the enforcement will feature saturated patrols focused on preventing and detecting drunk drivers and the illegal transportation or consumption of alcohol.

The enforcement is funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety.
