Area police host event encouraging safe driving

GRUNDY COUNTY -- A lot of motorists heading west on Interstate 80 Thursday got some face time with a state trooper.

But instead of giving them a ticket, Trooper Mark Dorencz offered brats, burgers, beverages, maps and other goodies.

Dorencz also had literature and safety tips for visitors to the rest area between Minooka and Morris as part of an effort to promote safe driving over the Independence Day weekend.
