ST. CHARLES – A traffic safety campaign during the Thanksgiving holiday in St. Charles netted one charge for driving under the influence, according to a news release from the St. Charles Police Department.

The two-week campaign, which ended Sunday, also resulted in one citation for public urination; 12 citations for safety belts; three citations for driving on a suspended or revoked license; four citations for driving without insurance; 11 citations for speeding; and six citations for various other violations, according to the release.

Officers also issued 34 warnings for various violations during the campaign.
