In addition, the Lombard Police Department issued the following:  

  • 138 Speeding Citations

  • 18 Child Seat Safety Citations
  • 119 Other Citations (Moving/Non-Moving)
  • 23 Arrests

    • 1 Criminal Damage to Property Arrest
    • 4 Warrant Arrests
    • 1 Felony Arrest for Possession of Altered Registration
    • 5 DUI Arrests 

“Distracted Driving Awareness Month allowed Lombard Police to bring a heightened awareness to stop motorists from engaging in this dangerous, and all too common, behavior,” said Traffic Safety Unit Patrol Officer Dan Herrera. 

The Lombard Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort.

Using your phone in anything other than the hands-free mode in Illinois is not only dangerous but also illegal. Break the cycle. Drop it and drive. 

The Illinois distracted driving campaign is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
