Please re-read the article... it said a FLAT year. That means no expected growth and no expected losses.So spectulating and crying doom is very premature.

Layoffs probably inevitable but speculating on a move out of state or country is premature. As for your other questions I would refer you to Rosanne Rosanadanna - her first response would be "You sure ask a lot of questions for somebody from New Jersey". Sorry to the youngens out these who weren't exposed to Rosanne - very funny stuff.

Enforcement patrols scheduled to be out in force

The Quincy Police Department today announced it will take part in the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over/Click It or Ticket crackdown by conducting special patrols during this Memorial Day holiday period to curtail impaired drivers and late-night safety belt law violators.

 

Between May 9th and May 26th, the Quincy Police Department will increase traffic patrols to catch and arrest anyone who is driving while impaired or unbuckled.

 

Important tips to consider include:

 

If you are hosting a Memorial Day party:

 

  • Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you serve is involved in an impaired driving crash;
  • Make sure all of your guests designate a sober driver in advance or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers;
  • Serve lots of food  and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party;
  • Keep the phone numbers for local cab companies handy and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving impaired.

 

If you will attend a Memorial Day party:

 

  • Designate a sober driver before the party begins and give that person your car keys;
  • If you do not have a designated driver, call a cab, sober friend or family member to pick you up or just stay where you are and sleep it off until you are sober;
  • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired;
  • Always buckle up – it is still your best defense against an impaired driver.

 

Alcohol not only dangerously impairs your driving skills, it also impairs your judgment.  If you see friends under the influence of alcohol, make sure you don’t let them get behind the wheel.

 

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over/Click It or Ticket crackdown is made possible through federal traffic safety funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety.
