This St. Patrick’s Day, a Designated Driver is Your Lucky Charm
As we head into St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Lombard Police Department is reminding motorists that they will be out in full force to keep our roads safe from impaired drivers.
“This St. Patrick’s Day, make your own luck by designating a sober driver,” said Traffic Safety Unit Patrol Officer Dan Herrera. “If you’ll be drinking, using cannabis or partaking of any other impairing substance, planning ahead is the best way to ensure you and your friends make it home safely.”
In addition to looking for alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers, the Lombard Police Department will be stepping up seat-belt enforcement, particularly at night when seat-belt usage rates are lowest. Speeding, distracted driving and other traffic laws will also be strictly enforced.
