2019 Holiday Season Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Enforcement Campaign

Park Ridge, IL — The Park Ridge Police Department partnered with the Illinois Department of Transportation and law enforcement across the state for the 2019 holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. From Dec. 16 through Jan. 2, law enforcement showed zero tolerance for impaired driving.

The Park Ridge Police Department also took the following enforcement actions: 74 failure to wear a seat belt citations, 7 speeding citations, 6 distracted driving citations, 2 traffic control device citations, 1 no insurance citation, and 5 equipment citations. 

The Park Ridge Police Department ramped up its usual enforcement efforts during the holiday season with extra emphasis placed on late-night hours, when statistics show most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.

We can’t stress this enough that Impaired driving is deadly, illegal behavior, and it puts the driver, passengers and other road users at risk. The ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign helps our law enforcement officers address this problem head on. Because of this special enforcement effort, our roads were safer for the holidays.

The Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
