"Click it or Ticket” “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”
November 11, 2012
The Palatine Police Department is dedicated to keeping our roadways the safest they can be. This Thanksgiving Holiday, we have partnered with the Illinois Department of Transportation to put extra uniformed police officers on the streets from November 12th through November 25th. Research shows that between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am, we suffer the most serious traffic accidents due to impaired driving, speeding, and the failure of vehicle occupants to wear safety belts. With grant funding provided through IDOT, the Palatine Police Department will institute uniformed saturation patrols dedicated to identifying and arresting impaired drivers, as well as strictly enforcing speeding and safety restraint violations. Additionally, the Palatine Police Department will set up Safety Belt Enforcement Zones throughout Palatine to enforce the use of seat belts.
The Palatine Police Department wants to wish everyone a safe Thanksgiving Holiday. Please do your part by driving responsibly and calling 9-1-1 to report unsafe or erratic driving.
