Secretary of State warns about drunk driving
Springfield, Ill (WICS) —
Secretary of State, Jesse White, wants to reminds drivers that driving drunk can be deadly.
He says last Christmas Eve and Christmas day two of the nine fatalities were alcohol related.
On New Year's Eve and New Year’s Day three of the seven fatalities involved alcohol.
White adds 76% of Illinois motorists arrested for driving under the influence are men, whose blood-alcohol content is twice the legal limit.
