2014 Thanksgiving Click it or Ticket Campaign results

December 2, 2014 09:49 AM
From November 17 – 30, 2014, IDOT supported enforcement to remind motorists to buckle up and not drive impaired, both day and night, during the merged Click It or Ticket/Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilizations.  The Galesburg Police joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce highway fatalities by cracking down on unbuckled motorists and impaired drivers.


During the mobilization, The Galesburg Police issued:

      • 8 seat belt citations
      • 2 child car seat citations
      • 1 DUI arrests
      • felony arrests
      • 21 cell phone while driving citations
      • 1 fugitive apprehended
      • 1 suspended/revoked license
      • 14 uninsured motorists
      • 1 speeding citations
      • 1 drug arrest

The annual Click It or Ticket mobilization may be over in Galesburg, but that is no excuse to stop using your seat belt. "Our officers are out all year long.  If you or your passengers are caught not wearing a seat belt, day or night, you will be cited for the safety violation," says Lt. Russell Idle.
