Campton Hills police two drunken drivers who had blood-alcohol concentrations greater than the legal limit of .08 grams per deciliter during a crackdown on drunken driving from Dec. 20, 2013, to Jan. 5, 2014.

The effort by the Campton Hills Police Department was part of the broader Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday crackdown on drunken drivers that was under way in many area communities and elsewhere in the state.

Police Chief Dan Hoffman said reducing the deadly dangers from drunken drivers was a top priority as the Campton Hills Police Department was out in force during the holiday season.

“We warned partygoers not to drink and drive, and we backed it up with aggressive enforcement,” said Chief Dan Hoffman. “These offenders needed to realize their actions have serious and potentially fatal consequences, and hopefully, now that they have been arrested, they will not put themselves and others at risk by driving drunk again.”

“Drunk driving is deadly dangerous and people can get too wrapped up in the excitement of the holidays and make bad decisions,” Hoffman said. “The bottom line is if you have been celebrating the holidays with alcohol, you don’t belong behind the wheel. Never drink and drive.”

The recent law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
