I was looking over the Illinois State Police blotter and I found a surprise. We just got over the 4th of July weekend, and to my surprise things were not too bad out there on the highways.

Yes, there were alcohol/drug arrests as usual, but something else caught my eye as I was looking at the police report. When I looked over at the driving under the influence arrests, there was a big zero in that slot. Yes, no driving under the influence arrests! I have not seen that in a few years.

Are we starting to get the message to not drink and drive? We can only hope so.
