[ARCHIVED] Memorial Day Traffic Safety Campaign

Beginning today and running through Memorial Day, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in a statewide traffic safety campaign, focusing on those driving under the influence, excessive speed, distracted driving, and seat belt compliance.    

“While traffic on the roadways has been lighter amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to see serious crashes, excessive speeds, and individuals making the unwise choice to drive under the influence,” said Sheriff John Idleburg.  “We will have extra deputies out during this time to ensure those utilizing our roadways can do so safely.”

The traffic safety campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds.
