The Fairview Heights Police Department issued eleven seatbelt and child safety
seat citations during the recent Thanksgiving enforcement effort. Our agency
also issued fourteen other citations to include 4 citations for
Suspended/Revoked licenses.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save
lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The
enforcement campaign took place from Nov. 19 through Nov 29.

During the mobilization, extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during latenight hours, when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving
fatalities occur.

The Thanksgiving enforcement effort was made possible by federal traffic safety funds
administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
