These safety checks will encompass all of District 22, which includes the southernmost seven counties of Illinois.

The checks are funded through a grant from the United States Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
