FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Hanover Park, IL –
January 17, 2022
Deputy Chief Andy Johnson
The Hanover Park Police Department made 6 impaired driving arrests, 7 warrant arrests, and issued more than 250 citations during the recent holiday enforcement effort including:
- 10 seat belt and child safety seat citations
- 24 suspended/revoked/no valid licenses
- 34 uninsured motorists
- 39 speeding citations
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 Dec. 17 through Jan. 3.
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.
