The fall enforcement campaign took place from Oct. 14 through Nov. 1.

Extra emphasis was placed on enforcement during late-night hours when statistics show the most unbuckled and impaired driving fatalities occur.

The recent law enforcement campaign was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
