As Thanksgiving approaches, buckle up and designate a sober driver

Auburn, IL – As Illinoisans gear up for one of the busiest travel times of the year, the Auburn Police Department announces its plans for a traffic safety campaign focusing on impaired and unbuckled drivers.

“Holiday traffic brings with it an increased risk for accidents,” said Chief Campbell. “To ensure your family makes it to and from your Thanksgiving feast without incident, make a conscious choice to buckle up and plan ahead for a sober ride home.”

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 15 motor vehicle crash fatalities occurred in Illinois over the 2018 Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Five of the 15 deaths occurred in crashes involving at least one driver who had been drinking.

Auburn Police Department is partnering with the Illinois State Police and local law enforcement across Illinois for the increased statewide effort.  The high visibility crackdown will run from November 22nd through the holiday weekend into the early morning hours of December 2nd.
