During the Super Bowl enforcement campaign, the Lombard Police Department made three (3) traffic-related arrests and issued 17 citations, including the following:
- 4 seatbelt citations
- 4 speeding citations
- 3 distracted driving citations (cell phone)
- 6 other citations (moving/non-moving)
The Super Bowl weekend “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” enforcement effort ran from Friday, Feb. 10, through the early morning hours of Monday, Feb. 13. The goal was to keep impaired drivers off the roads and ensure more people buckle up and follow all traffic safety laws.
“Motorists should understand that we are serious about cracking down on impaired drivers and seat belt and other traffic safety law violators. We do it to save lives,” said Lombard Traffic Safety Unit Officer Dan Herrera.
The recent Super Bowl enforcement campaign was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
