December 17, 2021
Deputy Chief Andy Johnson
– The Hanover Park Police Department made 2 impaired driving arrests and issued more than 122 tickets during the Thanksgiving traffic safety enforcement effort and took the following enforcement actions:
- 14 seat belt citations
- 6 child restraint citations
- 7 no valid/suspended/revoked driver’s licenses
- 9 uninsured motorists
- 16 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 Nov. 19 through Nov 29.
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 Thanksgiving enforcement effort was made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
