Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Results

The Algonquin Police Department made three impaired driving arrests and issued ten seat belt and child safety seat citations during the recent Thanksgiving enforcement effort.

Algonquin also took the following enforcement actions.

  • 3 felony arrests
  • 1 distracted driver cited
  • 21 speeding citations
  • 12 other citations
  • 4 traffic arrests

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The enforcement campaign took place from Nov. 19 through Nov 29.

During the mobilization, extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.

The Thanksgiving enforcement effort was made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
