North Aurora Cracking Down on DUI for Super Bowl Sunday

“We are reminding everyone that if you choose to drink and drive in North Aurora this weekend, you will be arrested,” Chief David Summer says.

The North Aurora Police Department announced Tuesday it will conduct special patrols this Super Bowl weekend cracking down on drunken drivers and seat belt law violators.

“We are reminding everyone that if you choose to drink and drive in North Aurora this weekend, you will be arrested,” said Chief David Summer. “If you plan on drinking alcohol while cheering on your team, pass your keys to a sober driver before the Super Bowl party begins. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

“Motorists also can anticipate tickets for ignoring the seat belt laws,” Summer continued. Chief Summer said that always designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk are just two of several simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or an arrest due to drunk driving.  Other important tips include: 
  • Call a taxi, use mass transit or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely;
  • Use your community’s designated driver program
  • Report drunk drivers to law enforcement;
  • Spend the night where the activity is being held;
  • Always buckle up — it’s your best defense against a drunken driver.
  •  “We will show zero tolerance for drunk drivers,” Summer said. “So remember, designate a sober driver before the party begins.”

    The North Aurora Police Department’s Super Bowl enforcement effort is funded with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

    See our neighbor is going to school on Naperville's illegal anti-4th amendment road blocks supposedly to check for DWIs but in reality is to harass law abiding citizens and condition them to be sheepel. Beyond the extortion, revenue tickets of seat belts, light out etc. safety of our citizens demands protecting our citizens from Gestapo tactics which this behavior clearly is! Take note it is a simple escalation to go to shelter-in-place (martial law) types of behavior. Freedom is lost one step at a time.

    Sorry to interrupt, Professor Tetley. ... But I'd like to add that one other way to lose your freedom is to get killed by a drunk driver.
