In addition, 89 citations were issued for various violations including speeding, expired/suspended registration, no insurance, suspended driver’s license, and operating a vehicle while using an electronic communication device.
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 fall enforcement campaign took place from Oct. 14 through Nov. 1.
The recent law enforcement campaign was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
