Police step up seatbelt, DUI enforcement for Thanksgiving weekend


The DeKalb and Sycamore Police Departments are each warning motorists that they’ll be watching for seatbelt violators and DUI drivers, during the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend.

The Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois State Police are joining local departments in their “Click It or Ticket” campaign during the holiday weekend.

Drivers spotted without a seat belt will be pulled over and ticketed, as part of stepped-up enforcement efforts in town beginning Friday and continuing through the Monday after Thanksgiving.

Police will also be looking out for drivers operating under the influence, or texting while driving; the former has become more of a problem, as the night before Thanksgiving has evolved into the riskiest night of the year for drinking and driving.
