Lake in the Hills police cite 48 during special enforcement

LAKE IN THE HILLS – Almost 50 citations for violations to the Illinois Vehicle Code were issued by the police department during its special enforcement leading up to Memorial Day.

During the campaign, which ran from May 9 to 26 and was paid for by the Illinois Department of Transportation, the police department issued 48 citations for vehicle code violations.

There were three people arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, and one person arrested for operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, police said.

“Our message has always been clear: We want people to buckle up, obey the speed restrictions, don’t drive while intoxicated and designate a sober driver,” said Police Chief David Brey. “The goal for our enforcement campaigns is to obtain voluntary compliance to the laws that were enacted to keep the motoring public safe.”

The next enforcement campaign is scheduled for June 23 to July 6.
