The Plainfield Police Department joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois in this annual effort to get more motorists to buckle up, in the front and back seat - and save more lives.
During the crackdown, Plainfield police issued the following citations, along with making arrests:
- 97 seat belt citations
- 9 child
safety seat citations
4 DUI arrests
- 6 suspended/revoked licenses
- 23 uninsured motorist citations
- 26 speeding citations
- 6 drug arrests
- 14 illegal use of cell phone citations
- 25 other
The annual Click It or Ticket mobilization may be over in Plainfield, police said in a press release, but that is no excuse to stop using your seat belt; officers are out all year long. If you or your passengers in the front seat or back seat are caught not wearing a seat belt, day or night, you will be issued a citation, police said.
