Crystal Lake police complete St. Patrick's traffic enforcement

CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake police issued no tickets for impaired driving during a five-day St. Patrick's traffic enforcement campaign that ended Monday.

The department took part in the statewide Drive to Survive campaign and issued 71 citations to 63 motorists, but none were found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The increased enforcement resulted in 19 safety belt; one child restraint; six uninsured driving; 15 electronic device usage; 20 speeding; and 10 moving offense citations. Two people were arrested for driving on a suspended license while another was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

The campaign was federally funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation's Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket programs.
