Naperville Police Arrest Three for Impaired Driving during St. Patrick’s Day Enforcement Campaign

Drive Sober LogoThe Naperville Police Department made three arrests for driving under the influence and issued 22 speeding citations during the St. Patrick’s Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign.

“Because of the efforts by our community leaders to spread the word about alcohol and drug impaired driving, the streets were safer during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Derek Zook. “We strongly enforce traffic laws for one reason – to save lives.”

The Naperville Police joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the St. Patrick’s Day enforcement campaign.

The law enforcement campaign was funded by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
