Illinois State Police are preparing to step up traffic enforcement for the holidays.

This year, the officers are dedicating the push a fallen officer. "Operation Kyle" is a 24 hour traffic enforcement push between Tuesday and Wednesday. Trooper Kyle Deatherage was hit and killed by a semi-truck during a traffic stop on November 26, 2012. The truck driver, 52-year-old Johnny Felton Junior faces multiple charges and 14-years in prison if convicted.

The Illinois State Police will have increased patrols through the New Year, they will place an emphasis on speeding, use of seatbelts, DUI's, and distracted driving.

   LITCHFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Two Interstate 55 rest stops in central Illinois now bear the name of a state trooper killed on the freeway last year.

   Kyle Deatherage's family joined Illinois State Police in dedicating signs Thursday that designate the rest stops near Litchfield in Deatherage's honor. The action was approved earlier this year by Illinois' General Assembly.

   Deatherage was a 32 year old motorcycle trooper when he was hit and killed by a passing tractor-trailer last November during a traffic stop along the highway, about 45 miles south of Springfield.

   The trucker, 52 year old Johnny Felton Jr. of Hinesville, GA, is charged with reckless homicide and operating a commercial motor vehicle without a proper license. He has pleaded not guilty.

   Deatherage was a married father of two children and had been a trooper since May 2009.
