The Galesburg Police Department announces St. Patrick’s Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Crackdown results

"The Galesburg Police made three drunk-driving arrests during the recent St. Patrick’s Day crackdown," said Lt. Russell Idle. Three of the arrests were made after midnight. In addition, five seat belt citations were written, two of which occurred during nighttime hours.
The Galesburg Police joined forces with other state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the Illinois St. Patrick’s Day campaign. The campaign featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities which included a strategic media campaign as well as additional enforcement activity.
The crackdown took place as data shows a recent increase in drunk driving fatalities in Illinois.
This law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety grants through IDOT’s Division of Traffic Safety and is part of the statewide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.
