Illinois State Police have wrapped up their Click It or Ticket campaign. It was part of an effort to step up patrols for Memorial Day weekend.

The goal wasn’t only to catch drivers not wearing their seatbelts; officers were also on the lookout for speeders, distracted drivers, and people driving under the influence.

Here’s a breakdown from two departments in Central Illinois:

East Peoria Police issued:

  • 21 Citations for seatbelt violations
  • 4 child restraint citations
  • 6 DUI arrests
