Crystal Lake police issue 72 violations during special enforcement

CRYSTAL LAKE – A Memorial Day "Click it or Ticket" enforcement netted Crystal Lake police 72 traffic citations and two drunk driving arrests.

Paid by the Illinois Department of Transportation, police in Crystal Lake heightened their enforcement of seat belt laws this month. Agencies from Algonquin, Lake in the Hills and across the state also participated separately.

During the extra enforcement, Crystal Lake police issued 72 traffic citations, including 21 safety belt violations and 14 violations for illegal cell phone use. Police also charged two adults with driving under the influence.

The statewide campaign is meant to get more motorists to buckle up and save lives, Crystal Lake police said in a news release.
