The Naperville police had eight drunken driving arrests and wrote a total of 205 other citations during a special enforcement campaign that ran from Aug. 16 to Sept. 2.
“I am proud of our officers for their hard work and dedication to making our community’s roads safer,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Al Trotsky.
“Drunk driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals,” he said. “Each year, drunk driving costs the lives of thousands on America’s highways.”
The Naperville Police Department joined forces with hundreds of police agencies across Illinois and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in this year’s “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
The recent law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
