[ARCHIVED] Thanksgiving Traffic Safety Campaign Results

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic safety campaign November 18 – 28, reminding motorists to buckle up and drive sober. The “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” mobilization was conducted by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce highway fatalities.  

During the campaign, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office arrested one person with a felony warrant and issued: 

    12 citations for speeding

    8 citations for failure to wear a seatbelt

    2 other citations

“Our deputies patrol year-round to keep motorists safe,” said Sheriff John D. Idleburg. “We do this to save lives and ensure all of us make it home safely at the end of the day.”

The Thanksgiving enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
