Police Department Announces St. Patrick’s Day ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Enforcement Results

The Algonquin Police Department today announced it issued one seat-belt and 14 speeding citations during the St. Patrick’s Day enforcement period.

“Impaired drivers are a risk to everyone on the road,” said Sergeant Robert Salazar. “We strongly enforce traffic laws for one reason – to save lives.”

The Algonquin Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for the St. Patrick’s Day campaign.

The law enforcement effort was funded by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
