Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

The Arlington Heights Police Department will begin specialized traffic enforcement activities relating to the Memorial Day holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaigns from May 10-28, 2019.

Enforcement activities will include numerous seatbelt enforcement zones, impaired driving saturation patrols, and a Roadside Safety Checkpoint. The checkpoint will take place on Friday, May 17, 2019 on Rand Road at Beverly Lane.

Officers working the campaigns will be attempting to identify and cite motorists who choose to drive without using their safety belts, are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are committing other traffic-related offenses.

The campaigns are funded with federal traffic safety funds, which are administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation – Division of Transportation Safety.
