From March 13-17, Schaumburg police issued 11 speeding tickets, 11 tickets for cell phone use by driver, 6 for seatbelt violations, 18 for insurance violations and 26 for other moving and equipment violations. It was part of the St. Patrick's Day campaign funded by the Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program and ran in conjunction with the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click it or Ticket" campaigns. The STEP grant gave the Schaumburg Police Department the funds to hire back officers on an overtime basis to conduct the campaign, so as not to interfere with normal police operations.
