Hinsdale police begin Fourth of July crackdown on drunk drivers

HINSDALE – The Hinsdale Police Department announced its plans for Fourth of July traffic enforcement, focusing on both drunk and unbuckled drivers.

The intensified enforcement effort will focus on late-night hours as statistics show a disproportionate number of traffic deaths occur late at night and involve a drunk driver and/or unbuckled motorist.

The crackdown is part of the statewide, Independence Day "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" effort.

The Hinsdale Police Department will join the Illinois State Police and hundreds of police and sheriff’s departments in a statewide enforcement effort that begins June 28 and runs through July 7.

The law enforcement crackdown is funded by federal traffic safety funds through IDOT’s Division of Traffic Safety.
