Kendall County Sheriff to Crack Down on Drunken Drivers

Dec 15, 2014 01:45PM, Published by Steven Jack, Categories: News, Police




From Dec. 19 through Jan. 4 of the New Year, The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office will be out in force as part of the annual Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunk drivers.

The statewide crackdown will include 
high-visibility alcohol and belt enforcement throughout Kendall County. The statewide crackdown will also be supported by national and state paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb drunk driving during the holiday season.

Kendall County Sheriff Dwight Baird said deputies will be aggressively looking for drunk drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving drunk. In addition, front and back seat belt law violators will be ticketed.

“You’ll see us out there during this highly visible enforcement period. Drunk drivers will be arrested and those not observing seat belt laws will be ticketed,” said Baird.

Baird noted that being arrested for driving drunk brings a wide range of negative consequences
into one’s life. Drunk drivers face jail time, loss of their driver licenses, and steep financial consequences such as higher insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work and the potential loss of employment.
