Holiday Traffic Campaign 2021

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Holiday 2021
Posted on 12/17/2021

With holiday festivities rapidly approaching, the Arlington Heights Police Department announces their participation in a statewide impaired driving awareness campaign from December 17, 2021 through January 3, 2022. 

If your celebration will involve alcohol or other impairing substances, please plan ahead for a sober ride home and remember to buckle up – it’s the best defense against an impaired driver. 

Keep these tips in mind to help ensure a safe and joyful holiday season:

  • Before you head to the party, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride-sharing service to get home safely.
  • Buzzed driving is impaired driving.
  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, pull over and call 911.
  • Have a family member or friend who is about to drive impaired? Take their keys and help them get home safely.
  • Always buckle up!

Please enjoy your holiday festivities responsibly!

The holiday enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
