During its Thanksgiving enforcement effort, police made two impaired driving arrests and issued 29 speeding citations, two traffic arrests for driving with a suspended license and no valid drivers license, one misdemeanor complaint for a concealed carry while intoxicated violation and eight citations for other violations to the Illinois Vehicle Code.
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in these efforts to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more motorists buckled up. The enforcement campaigns took place from Oct. 16 through Nov. 1 and Nov. 19-29.
Extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.
The recent law enforcement campaigns were made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
