Buffalo Grove Police announce Super Bowl safety campaign results
The Buffalo Grove Police Department announced today it issued 11 seat belt citations during the recent Super Bowl traffic safety enforcement campaign. In addition, six other citations were issued, including one arrest for a driver’s license offense.
The Super Bowl weekend “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” enforcement effort ran from Friday, February 10 through Monday, February 13. The goal was to keep impaired drivers off the roads and ensure more people buckle up and follow all traffic safety laws.
“Motorists should understand that we are serious about cracking down on impaired driving and seat belt and other traffic safety law violations. We do it to save lives,” said Sergeant Tony Turano.
The recent law enforcement campaign was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
