[ARCHIVED] Christmas Holiday Traffic Safety Campaign Results

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office concluded its recent holiday traffic safety initiative.  

Sheriff’s deputies:

    Arrested two for driving with suspended/revoked driver’s licenses

    Arrested three for driving without a driver’s license

    Arrested one for reckless driving

    Issued 45 speeding citations

    Issued 23 seat belt citations

    Issued six uninsured motorist citations 

    Issued three distracted driving citations

    Issued two other moving citations

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by arresting impaired drivers and enforcing traffic laws which when violated, often lead to crashes. The enforcement campaign took place from December 17, 2021 through January 2, 2022.   

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