Special seat belt enforcement zones, impaired driving saturation patrols and Roadside Safety Checkpoints -- one scheduled for Friday, Aug. 22, on Arlington Heights Road south of Algonquin -- are part of the specialized traffic enforcement activities planned by the Arlington Heights Police Department in conjunction with the Labor Day holiday.
Officers are working with the enforcement campaigns of "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" from now through Monday, Sept. 1. The goal of the campaigns is 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 Transportation Safety.
