Submitted by the Montgomery Police Department:

From June 23 to July 6, the Montgomery Police Department and other area law enforcement agencies conducted an IDOT-supported enforcement to remind motorists to buckle up and driver sober for the 4th of July weekend.

During the mobilization, Montgomery police issued/arrested:

·16 seat belt citations

· 7 child safety seat citations

·2 suspended/revoked license arrests

·2 uninsured motorist citations

·3 speeding citations

·3 illegal use of cell phone citations

·1 other citations

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this statewide effort to get drunk drivers off our roadways and 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.
