Hanover Park, Illinois- The Hanover Park Police Department announced it issued 84 handsfree law violations, made 13 DUI arrests and issued nearly 500 citations including 106 speeding citations, 3 citations for illegal transportation of open alcohol, 44 citations for driving while license invalid/suspended or revoked, and 52 citations for no insurance during the April distracted driving enforcement period.
“We strongly enforce distracted driving laws for one reason – to save lives,” said Deputy Chief Terrence Sherrill. “Choose to drive distracted, and you’ll have a phone in one hand and a ticket in the other.”
The Hanover Park Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort.
Using your phone in anything other than handsfree mode in Illinois is not only dangerous, but also illegal. Break the cycle. Drop It and Drive.
The Illinois distracted driving campaign is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
