The Champaign Police Department issued numerous citations over the Independence Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over/Click It or Ticket Campaign.
• Seatbelt Citations – 9
• Cell Phone Citations – 3
• Other Citations – 2
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this statewide effort to encourage seat belt use, especially during late-night hours.
Extra emphasis was given to the late-night hours when statistics show the highest number of motorists drink and drive and the fewest buckle up.
The recent law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety funds through IDOT’s Division of Traffic Safety and is part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
