 “Memorial Day weekend kicked off summer vacation season, and our priority was to ensure that everyone arrived at their destinations safe and sound,” said Sergeant Al Trotsky “We said we’d be cracking down on those not wearing their seat belts. Some people chose not to listen, and they were ticketed.”

 As part of the national Click It or Ticket mobilization, The Naperville Police Department teamed up with law enforcement agencies from across the country to ticket motorists not wearing their seat belts.

The high-visibility enforcement campaign was timed to begin with increased travel for the Memorial Day weekend.

 According to new data released from the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatalities are up nationwide for the first time in 5 years.

Roy tax payers aren't laughing about what is going on in our city as city management transgressions continue to hit the news. All you have to do is read the newspapers you post on moron.

Is being a crony anything like being a cronut? Because either would make about as much sense in this dialogue.

Really Gerry? Newspapers? You probably read those that have titles like National Inquirer and The Star. Either that or they are the ones found at your home and are written in crayon.

Guess this new law will severely impede Naperville's finest from harassing its divers. Gov. Pat Quinn signed a law on Sunday prohibiting police departments in Illinois from requiring officers to meet ticket quotas. “Law enforcement officers should have discretion on when and where to issue traffic citations and not be forced to ticket motorists to satisfy a quota system,” Quinn said in a statement released by his office. “This new law will improve safety and working conditions for police officers and prevent motorists from facing unnecessary anxiety when they encounter a police vehicle.” The law is effective immediately.
