“As law enforcement officers, we do our best to protect motorists, pedestrians and other road users,” said Traffic Safety Unit Patrol Officer Dan Herrera. “While enforcement campaigns like these save lives, there is still much to be done. Please help us spread the message: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
The Lombard Police Department joined forces with other law enforcement agencies and highway safety partners throughout the state for the Labor Day traffic safety campaign.
The program was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
