The Lombard Police Department is reminding motorists about the dangers of impaired driving, particularly on Halloween when little ghouls and goblins are out in neighborhoods and on busy streets after dark.
If you plan to be out celebrating, keep this fearsome warning in mind: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Lombard Police will be out in full force this Halloween holiday from October 26 – November 1, with an overnight roadside safety check scheduled for the evening of Friday, October 26 at an undisclosed location.
“If you know you’re partying this Halloween, make sure you designate a sober driver to get you home safely,” said Investigations and Traffic Safety Unit Officer Lt. Joe Grage. “Don’t put yourself, or others, at risk by driving impaired by alcohol or drugs.”
Each year throughout Illinois, hundreds die in impaired-driving crashes, while others face the ramifications of a DUI, including jail time, loss of license, and thousands of dollars spent on attorney’s fees, fines and lost wages.
The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign urges everyone to follow these simple tips to help keep our roads safe during Halloween:
The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
