ST. CHARLES – State troopers and St. Charles police officers issued 38 citations during a joint roadside safety check held last week in St. Charles, according to an Illinois State Police news release.
Conducted on Randall Road south of Route 64, the safety check netted 23 citations for driving without insurance and seven citations for driving with a suspended license or not having a valid driver’s license. Other tickets and arrests were for aggravated driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, felony possession of another’s credit cards and endangering the life or health of a child.
The roadside safety check was part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign and was funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The grant was administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety.
