Shiloh, Illinois – The Shiloh Police Department issued 19 seat belt citations during the recent Fourth of July “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” safety campaigns.
In addition to seat belt enforcement, the Shiloh Police Department took the following additional actions:
- 4 citations for disobeying a traffic control device
- 1 citation for no valid driver’s license
- 1 citation for improper passing on the shoulder
- 9 written warnings for additional traffic violations
The Shiloh Police Department joined forces with more than 200 other state and local law enforcement agencies to get drunk and drugged drivers off our roads, encourage seat belt use, and enforce speeding and other traffic laws. The effort featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities, including the Illinois Department of Transportation’s new media campaign: “It’s Not a Game.”
The enforcement period was funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by IDOT as part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” programs.
