Gurnee police have announced results from a special enhanced safety restraint and impaired driving enforcement campaign that ran from Dec. 14 through Jan. 1. Funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the enforcement actions were conducted in an effort to boost restraint compliance and seize impaired drivers. Eight cops worked 39 extra hours for the enforcement. They found 30 safety restraint violations and made one alcohol-related arrest, Gurnee police said. They drove an additional 256 miles and issued two speeding tickets as part of the effort, along with 42 other citations.
