LAKE COUNTY — During the month of June, the Lake County Traffic Safety Partnership arrested and cited 1,127 drivers for a variety of traffic violations, including OWI, speeding and texting, according to a news release.
Lt. Ronald Russo, the Lake County TSP coordinator, said the group conducted two 'High Visibility Enforcement Patrols' in June, which concentrated on "prevention and detection of impaired driving behaviors, dangerous driving, seat belt violations and distracted driving."
Of the two patrols, the first focused primarily on dangerous driving, with 462 drivers arrested or issued a citation, Russo said. The second centered on watching for impaired drivers, with 665 being arrested or cited.
Russo said more than 860 drivers were issued varying written warnings in June, as well.
