The Arlington Heights Police Department will commence specialized traffic enforcement activities relating to the Thanksgiving Holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaigns from November 18, 2013 through December 1, 2013. Enforcement activities will include numerous seatbelt enforcement zones, impaired driving saturation patrols, and a Roadside Safety Checkpoint. The checkpoint will take place the night of Friday, November 22, 2013 on Arlington Heights Road south of Algonquin Road.
Officers working the campaigns will be attempting to identify and cite motorists who choose to drive without using their safety belts, are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are committing other traffic-related offenses.
The campaigns are funded with federal traffic safety funds, which are administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation – Division of Traffic Safety.
