Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies issued 35 citations during the recent Independence Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” “Drive High Get a DUI,” and “Click It or Ticket” safety campaigns as follows:
19 citations for speeding
13 citations for seat belt violations
3 citations for other traffic violations
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office joined forces with more than 200 other state and local law enforcement agencies to get drunk and drugged drivers off our roads, encourage seat belt use, and enforce speeding and other traffic laws. The effort featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities including a media campaign titled, “It’s Not a Game.”
The enforcement period was funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
