[ARCHIVED] Halloween Occupant Protection Campaign

Don’t be haunted by scary decisions

The Summit Police Department is stepping up occupant protection and impaired driving patrols through Halloween.

While Halloween celebrations may be different this year, many ghosts and ghouls will still be on the “haunt” for a frighteningly good time. The Summit Police Dept. today reminded motorists of the importance of planning for a sober ride home, making sure your passengers, especially our young ones, are using proper restraints before the scares start and keeping watch for little goblins walking along roads after dark.

Halloween is scary enough without adding impaired driving to the mix. Because even one drink can impair your ability to make responsible decisions, we urge you to make a plan for a sober ride home before you start the celebration.

The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide Occupant Protection and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
