ROCKFORD (WREX) -
If you'll be driving through the streets of Rockford this Father's Day weekend, you'll want to make sure your seatbelts are buckled and you are driving sober.
Starting Friday, the Rockford Police Department will be teaming up with the Illinois State Police to conduct a roadside safety checkpoint within the city limits of Rockford. According to a release from RPD, the primary focus of this detail is to remove impaired drivers from the roadways and to enforce seatbelt usage.
This detail is part of the "Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign."
