The Wheeling Police Department made six impaired driving arrests and two other significant arrests during the recent Memorial Day holiday enforcement campaign, the department said in a news release. In addition, 57 safety belt citations and 60 other citations were written.

Law enforcement agencies throughout the state participated in the effort to get impaired drivers off Illinois roadways during the 2013 Memorial Day Holiday.

Wheeling police joined forces with other state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the crackdown campaign, which was funded by federal traffic safety grants through the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety and is part of the statewide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.
