Speed Enforcement Campaign Nets Hundreds of Citations

The Naperville Police Department recently completed a concentrated speed enforcement campaign throughout the month of August, resulting in more than 200 total citations.

Officers assigned to the grant enforcement detail wrote a total of 179 speeding tickets and charged a number of drivers with driving while license suspended, driving without a valid license, and aggravated speeding.

The enforcement campaign was funded by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

“We know that speed is one of the main factors contributing to crashes in our jurisdiction,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Rick Krakow. “Through campaigns like this one, we’re stopping dangerous driving practices where we can, educating motorists to obey the posted speed limit, and ultimately making our roadways safer.”
