   Traffic ticket quotas may soon be a thing of the past in Illinois.  

   A proposal to outlaw them has cleared the state Senate and will be considered in the House. The legislation says police officers can't be evaluated on the number of citations they write.

   The bill's sponsor says it will let officers use more discretion in deciding whether or not to give someone a ticket.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A jury has awarded a $7.5 million judgment to a former St. Louis police officer who claimed her supervising sergeant sexually harassed her and that she suffered retaliation for complaining.

The Post-Dispatch reports Tanisha Ross-Paige was awarded $300,000 in compensatory damages and $7.2 million in punitive damages from the St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners for retaliation. The jury found in favor of the police board on a discrimination claim.

Ross-Paige's lawyer John Eccher called Friday's verdict "absolutely huge for this type of case." A police spokeswoman declined comment.

The original lawsuit claimed Sgt. Steven Gori distributed a mock "wanted" poster with Ross-Paige's picture and comments about her body. The suit claims Gori and a lieutenant gave Ross-Paige unfavorable shifts and different performance evaluations after she complained.

St. Pat's weekend DUI enforcement high

   St. Patrick's Day weekend is upon us and that means police departments across the metro area are on the lookout for drivers who've had too much to drink.  
   MoDOT reports that more than 200 Missouri law enforcement agencies will take part in a special impaired driving crackdown that puts additional officers on the road Friday through Monday.  
   Illinois transportation officials are giving local communities a little help with enforcement.  Edwardsville Police Deputy Jeffery Mills tells Fox 2 news the city has a special grant for enforcement over the St. Patrick's Day weekend.  "The IDOT grant allows us to bring officers in on overtime and their specific role is to enforce DUIs within the City of Edwardsville," he said.  Deputy Mills says the point behind the IDOT program is to keep the roads safe for other drivers.  
   Edwardsville police began conducting DUI checkpoints Thursday.  They'll continue through Monday night.
   Police in Alton, IL have announced a similar DUI enforcement effort.

Police ID body found in car

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 62-year-old woman whose body was found in a vehicle submerged in the Mississippi River.

The Southeast Missourian reports authorities say Autumn Vinson of Jackson, Missouri was found dead in the car submerged in about five feet of water Friday.

Darin Hickey, spokesman the Cape Girardeau Police Department, says police are investigating. Hickey says the body was found in the back seat of the vehicle, but it's unclear how it got there because the submerged vehicle was full of water.

An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.

The body was found after a passer-by called police Friday morning to report seeing the antenna and roof of the vehicle in the water.
