Deputy Chief Andy Johnson
The Hanover Park Police Department made 444 traffic stops and issued more than 490 citations during the recent Halloween enforcement effort including but not limited to:
• 5 DUI arrests
• 34 seat belt citations
• 11 child restraint citations
• 40 no valid/suspended/revoked driver’s licenses
• 49 uninsured motorists
• 102 speeding citations
• 25 tickets for distracted driving
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more motorists buckled up. The enforcement campaign took place from Oct. 16 through Nov. 1.
Extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.
The recent law enforcement campaign was made possible by federal highway 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..
