Shiloh, IL – The Shiloh Police Department issued 16 seat belt and child safety seat citations during the recent Thanksgiving enforcement effort.
Shiloh Police Department also took the following enforcement actions.
- 1 suspended/revoked license
- 1 vehicle fled from a traffic stop
- 3 uninsured motorists
- 3 distracted driving citations
- 2 speeding citations
- 2 improper lane usage citations
- 6 written warnings for additional traffic violations
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to reduce highway fatalities by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The enforcement campaign took place from Nov. 20-30.
During the mobilization, extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.
The Thanksgiving enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
