The Montgomery Police Department joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois in this annual effort to get more motorists to buckle up - and save more lives.
During the mobilization, Montgomery police issued:
- 55 speeding citations
- 14 seat belt citations
- 13 uninsured motorist citations
- 8 cell phone use citations
- 7 warrant arrests
- 3 suspended/revoked license arrests
- 3 no valid driver’s license arrests
- 2 DUI
“Our officers are committed to enforcing traffic laws to keep the motoring public safe throughout the entire year. If you are driving impaired or any occupants of the vehicle are not wearing a seat belt, day or night, you will be cited for the safety violation,” said Deputy Chief A. Sanders.
