Holiday enforcement results

The Hinsdale Police Department issued 44 citations during the recent Memorial Day “Click It or Ticket” enforcement period, according to a department release.

During the safety campaign, police made one DUI arrest and three arrests for suspended/revoked licenses. They also issued 24 speeding tickets, three citations for uninsured motorists, one citation each for distracted driving and seat belt violation, and 12 other citations for violations to the Illinois Vehicle Code.

The “Click It or Ticket” campaign, which is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds, aims to change the behavior of the millions of people who don’t buckle up.

“Through the Memorial Day enforcement campaign, we helped make Illinois roads safer and spread the word that seat belts and child safety restraints save lives,” Hinsdale Deputy Police Chief Thomas Lillie said.
