Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week February 18, 2016 Officer Mike Badger Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.   With our early spring-likeweather, Crime Stoppers wants to alert the public that Spring is also the time of the year that drivers tend to relax and fall into bad habits as road and weather conditions improve. Police respond to traffic crashes year round however, with the change in driving conditions, the causes of crashes also change. In good weather there is always an increase in crashes due to distracted driving, particularly crashes due to texting while driving. Texting while driving not only leads to more rear end crashes- it can and has caused severe injury crashes and even fatalities. Don’t make a mistake that can impact your life forever, don’t text and drive. Although Crime Stoppers doesn’t take tips regarding traffic and motorist activity, we are always looking for tips about ongoing criminal activity. If you have information we can use, call Crime Stoppers at 788-8427 or use our website, cashfortips.us. Help us solve crime in Central Illinois and please – drive safely.
