Illinois State Police are aiming to prevent unsafe driving with the return of motorcycle patrols in the area.

ISP District 20 announced this week that Adams, Brown, Pike Schuyler and Scott counties will see the return of motorcycle patrols on local roadways and interstates for the remainder of the year, depending on the weather.

“Traffic enforcement from the motorcycle unit provides a unique approach to observing traffic violations,” said Captain Robert Elliott, District 20 commander. “The focus of the motorcycle unit will be enforcement of speed, occupant restraint and impaired and distracted driving violations.”
