[ARCHIVED] Thanksgiving Traffic Safety Campaign Results

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two impaired driver and issued 23 seatbelt/child safety seat citations during the recent Thanksgiving traffic safety campaign.  Sheriff’s deputies also issued 42 speeding citations, 18 other traffic safety citations, and five arrests were made for individuals driving with suspended or revoked driver’s licenses.  

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 November 19 – November 29, 2021. 

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 Thanksgiving enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
