Galesburg Illinois – "The Galesburg Police issued 26 citations during the recent Independence Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over/Click It or Ticket crackdown on drunk drivers and seat belt law violators," said Lt. Russell Idle.
 
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this statewide effort to get drunk drivers off our roadways and encourage seat belt use during the busy Independence Day holiday.
 
The Galesburg Police joined forces with state and local law enforcement agencies in conducting the crackdown campaign, which featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities, including a media campaign and additional police activity.
 
Extra emphasis was given to the late-night hours when statistics show the highest number of motorists drink and drive and the fewest buckle up.
 
The recent law enforcement crackdown was coordinated by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
