Fox Lake police issue citations during holiday traffic enforcement

The Fox Lake Police Department conducted additional traffic enforcement from Dec. 17 to Jan. 2, reminding motorists to drive sober and buckle up as part of the Illinois Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort.

The department joined the Illinois State Police and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce motor vehicle crashes, injuries and deaths by arresting impaired drivers and issuing seat belt and other vehicle code violations.

During the 16-day effort, the department charged one in connection with driving under the influence, issued five citations to uninsured motorists ​and gave out seven citations for speeding.

“Our officers are committed year-round. If you drive impaired, you will be arrested,” Fox Lake Police Chief Jimmy Lee said.

The Click It or Ticket/Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort is funded with federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
