  • 2 registration violation citations – no valid registration and improper use of registration

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The enforcement campaign took place from Dec. 17 through Jan. 3. 

During the mobilization, extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur. 

The holiday enforcement effort was made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
