NAPERVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT: Begins Fourth of July Crackdown on Impaired Drivers and Seat Belt Law Violators
Naperville Police Department issued the following announcement on June 25.
Naperville Police Department will participate in an Independence Day traffic enforcement campaign with a focus on impaired and unbuckled drivers. The safety campaign will run through July 8.
“We’re asking all of our residents and visitors to celebrate Independence Day safely,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Derek Zook. “It’s simple: If you’re driving, don’t drink or use drugs. Our officers will be out in full force to keep impaired drivers off the road.”
Naperville Police Department will join the Illinois State Police and more than 160 local police and sheriff’s departments for the increased statewide enforcement effort.
The Naperville Police Department will also be conducting a roadside safety check on Friday, June 28.
“This Fourth of July, designate a sober driver and don’t let friends or family members drive under the influence,” said Sgt. Zook.
Other important tips include:
- Give your designated driver your keys before you go out.
- If you are drunk or impaired by drugs, call a taxi, take mass transit, use your favorite ride-sharing service or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely.
- Promptly report drunk drivers to law enforcement by pulling over and dialing 9-1-1.
- Make sure everyone in your vehicle wears their seat belt. Not only is it the law, it’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
