St. Patrick’s Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Crackdown Results 2017

March 21, 2017 09:50 AM
The Galesburg Police made three DUI arrests during the recent St. Patrick’s Day enforcement effort. In addition, seven seat belt citations were written — one of which occurred during nighttime hours.
Impaired driving causes tragedies year round. According to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10,265 people died in impaired driving crashes on our nation’s roads in 2015. 
"DUI arrests are very preventable," said Lt. Russell Idle. "Don’t ever get behind the wheel when impaired by alcohol, drugs or both. It takes everyone doing their part to make Zero Fatalities a Reality in Illinois."
The Galesburg Police joined forces with other state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the St. Patrick’s Day "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" crackdown. The enforcement effort was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.
