Champaign Police release Independence Day citation statistics

CHAMPAIGN - The Champaign Police Department has released its statistics for the number of citations issued during their Independence Day "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.

Champaign police say nine seat belt citations and three cell phone citations were issued during the campaign.  Law enforcement agencies across Illinois participated in this statewide effort, which encouraged the use of seat belts, especially during late-night hours.

This campaign was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety.
