State Police report rash of squad cars being hit

The Director of the Illinois State Police says too many drivers still aren’t getting the message about Scott’s Law.

There’s been a rash of ISP squad cars hit by passing motorists this year claiming the lives of two troopers.  Director Brendan Kelly explains the law.

“When they see a trooper, police officer, EMT, firefighter, construction worker with lights on doing work on the side of the road you have to pay attention, slow down and move over so they don’t get hurt or killed or you or others don’t get hurt or killed.”

Kelly says troopers have really been cracking down on Scott’s Law violators this year writing eight times as many tickets as last year.
