[ARCHIVED] Increased traffic enforcement through Memorial Day

Increased traffic enforcement for Memorial Day weekend. 

The Summit Police Department will be conducting special patrols throughout the week leading into Memorial Day weekend, May 15th - May 28th, to crack down on impaired drivers and encourage people to wear their seat belts. If you’ll be drinking, or using another impairing substance, plan ahead for a sober ride home. 

We urge our community residents and visitors to enjoy Memorial Day responsibly. We’ll be out in force to keep impaired drivers off the roads and help ensure that everyone makes it home safely. 

The Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns are administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
