Plainfield holiday enforcement numbers
1/9/2019, 3:51 p.m.
Plainfield - The Plainfield Police Department conducted additional traffic enforcement December 17 – January 2, 2019 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 Plainfield Police 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 17-day mobilization, Plainfield Police issued/arrested:
• 31 seat belt citations
• 4 child car seat citations
• 6 DUI arrests
• 2 suspended/revoked licenses arrests
• 9 uninsured motorist citations
• 2 speeding citations
• 7 illegal use electronic communication device citations
• 12 other citations
The annual Holiday campaign may be over in Plainfield, but that isn’t an excuse to stop buckling up. Not wearing your seat belt is a primary offense, meaning law enforcement can stop you and issue a citation for that alone. All vehicle occupants, regardless of seating position, are required to wear a properly adjusted seat belt. Officers are out year-round. If you or your passengers are caught not wearing a seat belt, you will be cited for the violation. If you drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you will be arrested.
