The Decatur Police Department says 20 DUI arrests were made during the holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
Decatur police say the campaign was held from December 16 through January 1. Of the 20 arrests made, seven were made by DPD officers working in IDOT-funded DUI hire back patrols. Additionally, 11 more citations were issued to individuals not wearing seat belts.
Decatur Police Sergeant Chris Peters says, “These offenders now realize their actions have serious and potentially fatal consequences, and we hope they will never put themselves or others at risk by driving impaired by alcohol or drugs again.”
