The Arlington Heights Police Department will have specialized traffic enforcement activities during May leading up to Memorial Day as part of "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket."

Enforcement activities will include numerous seat belt enforcement zones, impaired driving saturation patrols, and two Roadside Safety Checkpoints. The checkpoints will take place on Friday, May 9, and May 16 on Arlington Heights Road south of Algonquin Road. The enforcement campaign will run from May 9 through May 26.

Officers working the campaigns will be attempting to identify and cite motorists who choose to drive without using their safety belts, are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are committing other traffic-related offenses.

The campaigns are funded with federal traffic safety funds, which are administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation -- Division of Traffic Safety.
