WEST CHICAGO – The West Chicago Police Department made no drunk driving arrests and issued 23 seat belt citations during the July 4 "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns, according to a city news release.

West Chicago police joined law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois in these campaigns, which featured high-visibility enforcement and various outreach activities.

Police placed special emphasis on late night hours, when the highest number of motorists drive under the influence of alcohol and the fewest buckle up.

The campaigns were funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety.
