Oswego Police Stepping Up DUI Enforcement During Holidays

Dec 10, 2016 04:56PM ● Published by Steven Jack

Oswego Police are participating this holiday season in the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign.

Beginning Friday, Dec. 16 and continuing into the New Year, motorists will see stepped-up enforcement to watch for anyone who is driving impaired, distracted or without a seat belt.

Follow these tips to stay safe on the road this holiday season:

* If you will be drinking, plan on not driving. Arrange for a safe ride home or a designated driver

* If you become intoxicated or impaired, do not drive for any reason. Call a taxi, a sober friend or family member for a ride, or use public transportation.

* If someone you know has been drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. Take their keys, take them home or help them arrange a safe way home.

* If you see an impaired driver on the road, call 911. Your actions could help save someone’s life.

* Buckle your seat belt, regardless of where you are seated. By law, all occupants, in all seating positions, must wear their seat belt.
