Adams County Sheriff’s Office releases Fourth of July enforcement numbers
QUINCY — The Adams County Sheriff’s Office recently joined forces with more than 200 other state and local law enforcement agencies on July 4 to get drunk and drugged drivers off our roads, encourage seat belt use and enforce speeding and other traffic laws.
The effort featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities, including the Illinois Department of Transportation’s new media campaign: “It’s Not a Game.” The enforcement period was funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by IDOT as part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” programs.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Department made one arrest for impaired driving and issued one seat belt violation. Other violations during the safety campaigns were:
- 2 citations for no valid driver’s license registration
- 1 citation for illegal transportation of alcohol
- 4 citations for operating an uninsured motor vehicle
- 4 speeding citations
