[ARCHIVED] Montgomery PD announces St. Patrick's Day Campaign Results

The Montgomery Police Department successfully participated in the 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Sustained Traffic Enforcement Grant. Motorists were cited for failing to buckle up, expired driver’s license, speeding, no insurance and child restraint violations.

The Village of Montgomery joined forces with other state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the Illinois St. Patrick’s Day campaign. The campaign featured high-visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities which included a strategic media campaign as well as additional enforcement activity.

The crackdown took place as data shows a recent increase in drunk driving fatalities in Illinois.

This law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety grants through IDOT’s Division of Traffic Safety and is part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click it or Ticket” campaigns
