The Arlington Heights Police Department recently completed enforcement activities relating to IDOT’s designated Memorial Day Holiday Enforcement Campaign. The campaign began May 10, 2013 and ended May 27, 2013. During the campaign, one Roadside Safety Checkpoint, six 4-hour DUI Roving Saturation Patrols, and 16 Seatbelt Enforcement Zones were conducted. The primary focus was to identify and apprehend motorists who chose to drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, without using their safety belts, or were committing licensing, equipment or other miscellaneous Illinois Vehicle Code traffic violations.
Enforcement activities resulted in the following cumulative arrests and citations:
1 = Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI)
1 = Driving While License Suspended/Revoked
1 = Unlicensed Driving
2 = Expired Driver’s License
16 = Speeding
14 = No Insurance
106 = Safety Belt Usage / Child Restraint
9 = Registration-related
53 = Equipment-related
14 = Other Miscellaneous Traffic Violations
The Arlington Heights Police Department is committed to traffic safety and will continue to be an active participant in IDOT’s grant program by participating in the upcoming “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday enforcement campaign for Independence Day.
