Galesburg Police Releases Halloween Enforcement Numbers

November 7, 2017 08:38 AM
The Galesburg Police made one impaired driving arrest and issued ten seat belt and child safety seat citations during the recent Halloween enforcement effort.
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up during Halloween. The enforcement crackdown took place from Friday, Oct. 27, through the early-morning hours of Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.
The recent law enforcement crackdown was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
