Campton Hills police to crack down on drunken drivers

CAMPTON HILLS – Campton Hills police are about to crack down on certain traffic violations, such as drunken driving.

Beginning Friday, village police will participate in the annual statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, according to a Campton Hills Police Department news release.

The enforcement period ends Jan. 5.

Police Chief Dan Hoffman said in a release that his officers will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers during the crackdown period and will arrest anyone caught driving drunk. Those violating seat belt laws also will be ticketed.

“You’ll see us making lots of stops during this highly visible enforcement period, and if we suspect anyone is driving while intoxicated, officers will show zero tolerance for drunk driving,” Hoffman said.

Data indicates the holiday season is a particularly deadly time because of the increased number of impaired drivers on the roads, according to the release.

“The December holiday season is the ‘most wonderful time of the year,’ and we are going to keep our roads safe for travelers heading to visit friends and family,” Hoffman said.

The crackdown is supported by national and state paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb drunken driving during the holiday season.
