The Lake County Sheriff’s Office will partner with other area local law-enforcement for an Independence Day traffic safety campaign. From June 15th through July 6th, to encompass three summer weekends leading up to and after Independence Day, extra sheriff’s deputies will be on patrol to keep our roadways safe.
“As with any other holiday, we ask our residents and visitors to celebrate Independence Day safely,” said Sheriff John Idleburg. “We see so many tragic fatal and serious traffic crashes where drugs or alcohol were a contributing factor. If you are intoxicated, don’t get behind the wheel of a car.”
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office will join the Illinois State Police and more than 200 local police and sheriff’s offices for safety campaign.
The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” programs are made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The enforcement period runs concurrently with a media campaign reminding motorists that impaired driving has “Life or Death” consequences. Visit LifeOrDeathIllinois.com for more information.
