The numbers are in from an overnight Roadside Safety Check on 251 in Loves Park. Illinois State Police, Loves Park Police and Winnebago County Sheriff's Department all worked together to find drunk drivers.

Efforts resulted in 34 citations and 10 warnings being dished out. Three people were arrested for driving under the influence.

Eleven people did not have insurance. Officers took 25 grams of cannabis and five grams of cocaine out of the wrong hands.

Expect to see plenty of these checks throughout this busy summer season.
