ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department conducted additional traffic enforcement Nov. 16–26, reminding motorists to buckle up and not drive impaired, day or night, as part of the nationwide Click It or Ticket/Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort.

The department joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce highway deaths by issuing citations to unbuckled motorists and arresting impaired drivers. During the 10-day effort, the department issued six seat belt citations, three uninsured motorist citations and 13 speeding citations, according to a news release from the St. Charles Police Department.

“Our officers are out year-round," St. Charles Police Cmdr. Eric Majewski said in the release. "If you or your passengers, front or back, are caught not wearing a seat belt, you will be cited for the violation."

The Click It or Ticket effort was made possible with federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, the release stated.
