Algonquin Police Department Releases Thanksgiving Enforcement Numbers

Algonquin, IL – The Algonquin Police Department made one impaired driving arrest and issued 22 seat belt and child safety seat citations during the recent Thanksgiving enforcement effort.

Algonquin also took the following enforcement actions:

  • 18 speeding citations
  • 11 other driving citations

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. 22 through Dec. 2.

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

This law enforcement effort was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the nationwide “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaigns.
