The Buffalo Grove Police Department showed zero tolerance for impaired driving during the Labor Day holiday, arresting five offenders for the potentially deadly crime. Two of those drivers arrested were also cited for endangering the life of a child.

In addition, 62 citations were written for seat belt violations and 26 distracted driving tickets were written. 

“The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign gives police departments across the state the opportunity to help spread the message that preventing impaired driving is a matter of life or death,” said Buffalo Grove Police Sergeant Michelle Kondrat.
