Police announce holiday enforcement results

The Hinsdale Police Department made one impaired driving arrest during the recent Independence Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Drive High Get a DUI” safety campaigns over the Fourth of July holiday.

Hinsdale police also issued 27 citations for speeding, one for driving without a valid license and 14 for other violations of the Illinois Vehicle Code.

The department joined forces with more than 200 other state and local law enforcement agencies to get drunk and drugged drivers off the roads, encourage seat belt use, and enforce speeding and other traffic laws. The effort featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities including a media campaign titled “It’s Not a Game.”

The campaigns were funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
