JUST IN TIME FOR THE FAIR

The Sangamon County sheriff’s office, which has seen numbers of drunken driving arrests plummet since eliminating the department’s only full-time DUI enforcement officer last year, warns that deputies will be on the lookout for drunken drivers from Aug. 16 through Sept. 2 as part of a state and federally funded enforcement campaign. The sheriff’s department also says it will be watching for drivers and passengers traveling without benefit of seat belts. “Zero tolerance will be shown for seat belt violators, in the front and back seat,” undersheriff Jack Campbell said in a written statement. So don’t overdo it in the beer tents and, if you do, stumble, don’t drive, home. You’ve been warned.
