Holiday enforcement campaign nets results

The Hinsdale Police Department made one impaired driving arrest during the recent holiday enforcement effort.

Hinsdale police also made one battery arrest, cited one individual for distracted driving and cited two drivers for having an invalid/suspended/revoked license. In addition, they issued 19 speeding citations and three citations for other Illinois Vehicle Code violations.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The enforcement campaign took place from Dec. 17 through Jan. 3.

During the mobilization, extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.

The holiday enforcement effort was made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
