Schaumburg police issued 16 speeding tickets and 58 seat belt violation citations from Nov. 18 to Dec. 18 during a special traffic enforcement campaign conducted with the assistance of a grant funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
Officers working the enforcement campaign were assigned to patrol throughout the village, addressing occupant restraint and driving under the influence laws. The officers conducted both roving patrols and saturation patrols targeting specific intersections in an effort to enforce compliance. Officers working these details were hired back on an overtime basis, paid through the grant, so the campaign did not impact normal police operations.
Police also issued 18 citations to uninsured motorists; two for using a cellphone or texting when prohibited and 26 for other moving violations.
