Plainfield Thanksgiving traffic crackdown nets four impaired drivers, 88 restraint violations

Plainfield police made four impaired driving arrests and issued 88 seat-belt and child-safety-seat citations during a stepped-up Thanksgiving enforcement effort.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in the effort to get impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The campaign ran from Nov. 22 through Dec. 1.

Extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.
