"Click it or Ticket" "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" Enforcement Results

July 7, 2014
The Palatine Police Department is dedicated to making our roadways the safest they can be.  To strengthen that effort, the Palatine Police Department partnered with the Illinois Department of Transportation in their 4th of July Holiday Traffic Safety Crackdown.  Through a traffic safety grant, IDOT supplied funds to increase the number of uniformed Palatine Police officers on the roadways enforcing traffic laws over the 4th of July Holiday.  The focus of this campaign was to get intoxicated motorists off the roads and make sure vehicle occupants are kept safe through the enforcement of seat belt and child restraint use.
Through the holiday, Palatine Police uniformed officers hit the streets on dedicated traffic enforcement saturation patrols.  These saturation patrols emphasized the hours of midnight to 3:00 am which have proven to be the deadliest on Illinois roadways. 
The following is a summary of the results for the I.D.O.T. funded 4th of July Holiday Traffic Safety Crackdown in the Village of Palatine:
                        Driving Under the Influence – 3 arrests
                        Seatbelt Violations – 49 tickets
                        Possession of a Controlled Substance – 1
