Police and the State Department of Transportation are making a final push to keep motorists safe on Illinois roadways through the holidays.
IDOT Spokesperson Guy Tridgell says the click it or ticket and drive sober or get pulled over campaigns are in full gear now.
Over the last five years in Illinois, 38 people have died over the Christmas holiday.
Twenty-nine percent of those deaths involved a drunk driver.
So far this year, 878 people have lost their lives on Illinois roads, which is the lowest totals recorded.
