DUI patrols net arrests in Campton Hills, St. Charles

Police officers in St. Charles and Campton Hills completed their two-week traffic safety enforcement campaign, which ran through the Fourth of July weekend and concluded Sunday.

In St. Charles, police arrested six people for driving under the influence and made two felony arrests, according to a news release. They also issued four citations to uninsured drivers, seven citations for speeding and 11 citations for other violations. In addition to the citations, St. Charles police also issued 23 warnings for various violations.

In Campton Hills, officers made two arrests for driving under the influence, and they issued an additional 27 citations during the safety campaign. Police put extra emphasis on their late-night patrols because statistics show that’s when the highest number of impaired drivers are on the road and the fewest buckle up, the news release states.

The two departments participated in a statewide effort to reduce the number of drunken drivers and encourage drivers to wear their seat belts.

The campaigns are Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.

The Illinois Department of Transportation awarded grants through its Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program, allowing police departments to step up enforcement during the holiday weekend.
