In addition, the Lombard Police Department issued the following:

“We strongly enforce traffic laws for one reason – to save lives,” said Traffic Safety Unit Patrol Officer Dan Herrera. “Encouraging sober driving and seat-belt use improves safety for all.”

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket enforcement effort ran from Friday, March 11, through the early morning hours of Friday, March 18, to keep impaired drivers off the roads and ensure people buckle up and follow all traffic safety laws.
